Shabazz Palaces – “Forerunner Foray”

Later this month, the Seattle art-rap crew Shabazz Palaces will finally give us the twitchy, abstract new album Lese Majesty, their long-awaited follow-up to 2011’s endlessly rich Black Up. We’ve already posted their early tracks “They Come In Gold” and “#CAKE.” “Forerunner Foray,” the latest thing they’ve shared is full of negative space and disorienting synth-ripples, and Palaceer Lazaro’s voice comes through a few different filters. No other group could’ve put this song together. It’s an experience. Listen below.

Lese Majesty is out 7/29 on Sub Pop.
