Shabazz Palaces’ new “Forerunner Foray” is wormhole party rap

It's the space age turn up.

- Jul 14, 2014

What's in Shabazz Palaces' cup? "Forerunner Foray" is the third track so far from their new album, and all seem intent on pushing abstract hip-hop out of the brooding, witchy margins (see their debut release Black Up) and spreading its magic to where it all began: the party. Thick bass and synth winking like satellite flares quickly capture the essence of a good banger, and by extension us, though Palaceer Lazaro and Tendai Maraire refuse to compromise what makes them guests in our dimension (an enchanting interlude featuring Cat from THEESatisfaction helps).

Shabazz Palaces' new album Lese Majesty is out July 29 via Sub Pop; pre-order it here.
