We’re a little less than a month out from the release of Shabazz Palaces’ dual new albums Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star and Quazarz Vs. The Jealous Machines, and the Seattle art-rap group has been liberally sharing tracks from it, a luxury you can afford when you have two whole full-length albums waiting in the wings. We’ve heard “Shine A Light,” “30 Clip Extension,” “Since C.A.Y.A.,” and “Julian’s Dream (ode to a bad)” from the pair of albums so far, and today they’ve put out another one. “When Cats Claw” is from the Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star side of things, and it’s a rubbery and minimal number. Listen below.
Both new Shabazz Palaces albums — Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star and Quazarz Vs. The Jealous Machines — are out 7/14 via Sub Pop.
