The Uncluded (Aesop Rock & Kimya Dawson) – “Bats”

You wouldn’t expect abstract rap innovator Aesop Rock and antifolk queen Kimya Dawson to have anything to do with each other, but those guys have been maintaining a fruitful, if unlikely, artistic relationship for a while now, touring and recording together whenever they get a chance. And now they’ve got a name for their collaboration: The Uncluded. Together, they just released a Record Store Day single called “Bats,” a six-minute ramble that does a nice job marrying their disparate sounds. Listen to it below.

They’re planning to release a collaborative album later this year, so look for that.
