New music from Bay Area rapper Antwon, taken from his forthcoming Heavy Hearted In Doldrums, a free album presented by LA-based UNIF. The aptly titled album opener “Rain Song” features the always lugubrious Lil Ugly Mane + and his producer alter-ego Shawn Kemp on the beat, which is almost hymnal thanks to an ethereal, eerily Julianna Barwick-esque vocal sample. Heavy Hearted In Doldrums is out on limited edition picture disc + free download on May 6:
Black Up remains one of our favorite albums of the last decade, so it goes without saying that we’re pretty psyched about this: riZe vadZimu riZe, the triumphant debut LP from Shabazz Palaces member Tendai Maraire, aka Chimurenga Renaissance, is out today on Brick Lane Records, and this is the beautiful complementary visual accompaniment for the album, filmed in Zimbabwe. Featuring sprawling next-level production, traditional African instrumentation (ngoma, mbira, hosho), and inspired guest turns from Maraire’s SP partner Ishmael Butler aka Palaceer Lazaro, THEESatisfaction, Militia Malimob, M1 of Dead Prez + more.
