is Ishmael Butler
(Digible Planets) and Tendai Maraire
, and their Lese Majesty
was easily the most spun record on the Third Man
office turntable in 2014. Their admiration reached new heights when the label had the honor of hosting the Seattle-based duo for a live performance and direct-to-acetate recording in their Nashville Blue Room in 2015. In Third Man
consigliere Ben Swank's own words, "Shabazz Palaces' obstinately original oeuvre emanates from a fully formed higher conscious, they plant their flag in the outermost realms of the hip hop global soundscape where vibrations throb into beat-heavy explorations, chrome covered constellations of higher reveries each offering its own sonic boom." Third Man
has waited too long to relive this superlative performance, so it is sincerely their pleasure to announce that this live LP will finally be available to spin on your turntable in June 2016.
