Aesop Rock - Zero Dark Thirty
With his first album since ‘07’s None Shall Pass two months from release, underground icon Aesop Rock returns to our pages with the lead single off the project. Originally released to the ‘net for free download in April, the record finds Ian Matthias Bavitz handling both production and mic duties, weaving a characteristically intricate lyrical web over his own moody, arpeggiated-synth beat. Isaac Ravishankara directs the official visuals, which debuted this morning on MTV2. Skelethon is scheduled for release July 10, via Fifth Element, but those who pre-order now will receive a limited-edition T-Shirt and a special Aesop Rock mix by DJ Shazam Bangles.
