Awakening Sleepers :: Babelfishh Drops “Coma Worthy” Project

babelfishh has never been a stranger to breaking conventions and pushing the boundaries of creation, and he continues these sonic practices with coma worthy, his latest release.  Rather than me fumble around for the right words, I think I’ll let babelfishh speak on the project : 

“The second outing on Divergent Series, babelfishh‘s multidiscipline approach to everything real and unreal is actualized here – an uneasy gauntlet that runs through an unlucky 13 tracks combining chewing, junkyard blackened samples and fragment skull cleatings – ready for tooth pulling and leg bone mangling.  Wet blanket enthusiasts keep your distance.  667!

For those that care, this album took an exceedingly long time to complete due to living in an off grid cabin that is still without solar for now.
That in conjunction with doing a fair amount of rambling around and/or living out of the truck.
With that being stated, this album was written mostly on the road and then recorded in: people’s guestrooms, backyard shakes, garages, trailers, rehearsal spaces, an occasional hotel room and eventually finished up in what used to be a commercial kitchen.  These songs bleed as intended and spoil as predicted.  A celebration of nothing.”

Straight dopeness.  If you’re in to having your brain scrambled, dig this one and dig it good.

Dynamic Progression :: SHOTGUN HOWLING Connects Correctly

a0863356187_10

Anytime babelfishh releases something, I’m interested.  This time around, he’s connected with james p. honey for a collaborative project known as SHOTGUN HOWLING.  First impressions, this falls somewhere between Themselves and Panda Bear, with a wonderful sparse and organic approach to the production, like Tom Waits on an MPC.  The first video, vicious proposals, is super dope, so check it all out, share it all, and support if you can!

Pain For Pleasure :: Babelfishh Releases ‘Writhe In The Ailments’

I Had An Accident Records is the forerunner these days in independent abstract hip-hop.  My man Babelfishh, through this label, has released a wild journey of free-association lyrics, incredibly dense sonic soundscapes, and enough adventurous spirit to make even the dullest hip-hop head become inspired.  Support his cat by sharing this album, downloading, diving headfirst into the sounds presented.

Slice Of Life :: Babelfishh And ‘The King’s Horse’

babelfishh has been raw since day one… raw beats, raw rhymes, raw reality.  To think he would bring you anything less than captivating is foolish.  Here’s the latest visual from his canon, a candid performance shot by Adrian Woodhouse.  You can hear this song and others on the upcoming Howl Bender cassette.

Presence Felt :: ‘Wolves’ From WORK


word from WORK:

“Cultivated from the heavy heat and time spent between TASK (birdlikebats) in New York and EVAK1 somewhere south of Houston.  Wolves finally offers us a follow up to All That Is Solid MeltsWolves features a wild pack of guest vocalists, boiler room beats, and harrowing raps slammed together and pounded out the stereo like beers after a hard day.  WORK is putting it in, a workman’s craft – at the bottom of hip hop’s ivory tower are the bricklayers crafting the foundation, sweat dripping from brow as their raps hurl through the stale air, the beats crush and push hard.  Chew Them Up, The Cleaver League, Babelfishh, James P Honey, Perseph1, Mildew, and Beastmaster join in on vocals to the broken beats and classic hip hop stylings.”
