Scab Party "Scab Party"

Expanding the Backpack, 11/14/11

So, it seems that 11/11/11 offered up quite a few free download-able albums from respectable hip hop artists. Hands down the weirdest and most unpredictable of the bunch is Awol One's new project "Scab Party," which deviates from hip hop altogether in favor of some bizarre lo-fi punk singing aesthetic. Entirely produced and sung by Awol One, one can only scratch their heads and wonder what color pill sent the renowned Shapeshifter into such an utter state of mindfuckery. Scab Party's self-titled album is far from easy listening, to the point where it may even induce some hair-pulling and ear-plugging amongst Awol's more sensitive listenership. I'd be lying if I said I was feeling this 100%, but it is sort of fascinating to hear how weird Awol sounds doing this style of music. You can download Scab Party for free at the Brain Vein Music Bandcamp Page, or stream the album in full below. Poke it, pinch it, but don't pick at it too hard. And phuckyer blog!
