Rap has always had a tremendous impact on the production of Portishead sound-mastermind Geoff Barrow, but it’s been a long time since he’s tried making any of it himself. But Barrow, working under the name Fuzzface, is the man at the center of the new project Quakers, a crew that has 35 contributing members and a new album on the way. Below, listen to their track “Fitta Happier,” which samples a marching-band rendition of Radiohead’s “The National Anthem” and features verses from Stones Throw indie-rap mainstays Guilty Simpson and M.E.D. Shit is hard.
The self-titled Quakers album is out 3/27 on Stones Throw.
