I’ve been following Shabazz Palaces since Gorilla vs. Bear was shouting about them way back but nothing grabbed me enough to investigate beyond brief listens. That was until I heard ‘Swerve’ and it’s like the door has been opened. Signed to Sub Pop, Shabazz Palaces is none other than former Digable Planets member Ishmael Butler, operating out of Seattle along with producer Erik Blood and percussionist Tendai Maraire. The debut album Black Up is released on June 28th in the US. This is the closing track:
