premiere: watch Shabazz Palaces’ surreal animated “Forerunner Foray” video


We're honored to debut the brilliant new video from Shabazz Palaces, for our favorite song from the best album of 2014. The multi-talented Chad VanGaalen brings the Palaceer's vivid and profound "Forerunner Foray" imagery to life with his psychedelic, surrealist animation; stars slung across the heavens, majestic time-traveling black stallions, and Magic Johnson surfing the spaceways on a slice of pizza...

premiere: Shabazz Palaces – Forerunner Foray


"Forerunner Foray" is the glowing, interstellar new single from Seattle's Shabazz Palaces: straight from the center of the the Phasing Shift, the Palaceer's distinctive visionary flow and cosmically palatial production bridge past and future, bolstered by the ill Hustler's Convention sample and spectral guest vocals from Cat of SP's Black Constellation comrades THEESatisfaction...

mp3 premiere: THEESatisfaction – “Enchantruss”


You may recall that Seattle's THEESatisfaction nearly stole the show on one of the best songs from our favorite album of last year. Now the great Palaceer from Shabazz Palaces returns the favor by murdering the spacey/ominous new joint "Enchantruss," one of the many highlights from THEESat's excellent forthcoming "funk-psychedelic feminista sci-fi epic" awE naturalE, out March 27 on Sub Pop...
