The enigmatic Dem Hunger (blog commenter of the decade) recently sent over his spaced-out, dizzyingly awesome debut record, Caveman Smack (due out February 23 on Leaving). The label describes it as “Madlib beats bubbling up from a oozing volcano, its Dilla ambience for a nuclear winter,” but I’m partial to DH’s own apt “description” of this thing:
“GUESS THE WHOLE IDEA IS SOME EARLY HUMAN JUST LAYIN AROUND WITH HIS EYES OUT OF HIS HEAD. ALL SKULL BASHED UP IN THE RIVER. THIS MUSIC SORT OF FLOATIN AROUND INSIDE HIS JAWBONE. THE BONES GET EATEN BY THE SUN, THEN IT ALL GETS SPAT BACK DOWN TO EARTH.”
