Shabazz Palaces – “#CAKE”

By Tom Breihan / June 23, 2014

Next month, Seattle art-rap duo Shabazz Palaces return with Lese Majesty, the long-awaited follow-up to their 2011 album Black Up. We’ve already heard first single “They Come In Gold,” and now they’ve shared another one, the presumably poignantly titled “#CAKE.” It’s a messy sprawl of a track, a glitchy and propulsive throwdown that occasionally lapses into Flying Lotus-style electro-space-jazz. Give it a listen below.

Lese Majesty is out 7/29 on Sub Pop; schedule your secret meetings in the stratosphere accordingly.
