Session Every Thursday Daytrotter send out a list of the week’s sessions and this week, there was one that we just had to listen to. In March of this year, Seattle rap project Shabazz Palaces visited the Big Orange studios in Austin and recorded four tracks taken from their just released Subpop album ‘Black Up’ and now, you can finally listen online. “Shabazz mastermind Ishmael “Butterfly” Butler makes music that forms an entirely new context all its own, reaching out for us like the darkest arms protruding out of a house of mirrors, or a carnival of spooks” said Daytrotter of the session, “It sounds as if it’s walking with the help of a hundred different legs, splitting or pulling itself in the same number of directions, but always holding to a center point, or a pelvis”.
