SHABAZZ PALACES

Shine A Light

Sub Pop
'Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star' is one of two albums Shabazz Palaces are releasing this year and this lead-off leak from it promises alot — exquisite production that trembles within every pellucid facet, the edges of the sound mix rippling with dappled light, the centre held by a bone-crunching yet diffused and heavily reverbed guitar lick, all lounging on some plush orchestral psyche worthy of Edan/Adrian Younge. Other tracks I've heard from the album suggest there is not a single track which gives you a full picture of what the album contains cos it's so dazzlingly diverse. Nice to have 'em back. Get your tongue wedged in and start lapping.
