Another dope music video has been released for one of the many dope …&More… tracks that exists. This go round, Ndelible Ink lent a visual hand for Faces Places, and the end product will most certainly occupy a space in the depths of your mind. The setting is rustic, the juxtaposition between the presentations of Scuare and no1mportant are pitch perfect, and the main track is bookended by two of the instrumental tracks off of Existence Is Futile. You’ve heard me say it before, and I’ll say it again until it happens.. how are these cats not signed or at the next level yet? Don’t sleep, Austin, and maybe you’ll be lucky enough to say you’ve been down since day one when these cats eventually blow up.

Sometimes, pure skill and talent simply cannot be denied. Enter Scuare and no1mportant, two MC/producers who individually are capable of doing great things. When combined, however, these two work on a wonderfully harmonic resonance. Both cats have unique, rapid-fire and melodic styles that are similar enough for the duo to make total sense, but different enough from one another to compliment one another effortlessly.
A statement from …&more… concerning their amazing sophomore release, Existence Is Futile :
“In many ways it’s a celebration of a loss of ultimate purpose and growth through acceptance. The Star Trek metaphor helps to illustrate that notion through what we think is a pretty comical lens.
Outer Space is often juxtaposed with samples and lyrics that relate to how people view sex and relationships. These themes represent opposing points on the spectrum, and serve as anchors from which to expand.”
Take the time to dive into this wonderful piece of art. There is no sign of a sophomore jinx here.

Wow. Existence is Existential, the debut offering from …&more…, was already way ahead of its time when it dropped. I knew that when they hit us with a follow-up, it would be good. I had no way of fathoming that it could potentially be as good as the lead single, Faces Places, is setting the bar. Point blank, period, this is the jam. I am stretching the depths of my mind to find something grounding to say about this song, because it literally woke me right up from the first second. Good god, I can’t wait for Existence is Futile to drop.
