Coming off his latest Rhymesayers release, Bestiary, as part of Hail Mary Mallon, Aesop Rock recently collaborated with friends, the experimental group from Philly, Grimace Federation. Previously, the two worked together on Aesop Rock's Skelethon album, as well as Aesop's butchered remix of "Bosico", from Grimace Federation's On Velvet album.
Grimace Federation's sonic collages create a symphonic, cinematic, and immense sound. The band's musical foundation could be discovered in the grooves of records from post-rock legends such as Jaga Jazzist, Tortoise, and Stereolab, while latter day influences, like Mogwai and Black Sabbath, and a lifetime of collecting obscure underground hip-hop records notably seep into their symbiotic chaos.
The Measure In Mixture combines spastic krautrock beats with the grandeur of an Ennio Morricone soundtrack on a Boards of Canada sonic landscape. This limited edition 12" also features two bass-heavy remixes from Aesop Rock, one of which he also graces with his distinguished brand of dense wordplay and dark sense of humor. Ultimately, a must-have for crate-diggers all over the world.
Limited Edition LP on Transparent Clear Vinyl with White Haze Effect, Includes Free Digital Download Card.
