SSv Album Review: Shabazz Palaces - Black Up
The moment I first hear about Shabazz Palaces I became very excited. Being a long time fan of Ishmael Butler, it was good to see he was returning with new music and that it was being described as beyond anything he had ever done before. Sub Pop Records scooped him up after an EP double dose which paved the road for Butler's first full album under the Shabazz Palaces moniker. Black Up doesn't officially hit the streets until June 28th, but I got an advanced listen and have written a review for Stereo Subversion. My words about this spectacular album can be read over there now. Click the below link to take a look.
