Dark Time Sunshine ft. P.O.S. (of Doomtree) - Overlordian
It should give you an idea of big Dark Time Sunshine are doing it that they had to make up a new word to describe themselves; as the Washington-bred, Chicago-residing duo put it on their latest single and DJBooth debut, they’re downright Overlordian. Zavala‘s catchy, NES-style production is more chipper than you’d expect from an underground jam featuring bars as abstract and anti-consumerist as those delivered by Rhymesayers spitter Onry Ozzborn and Twin Cities-repping guest P.O.S. deliver here, but I’ll be damned if the combination doesn’t work. The fractured yet ear-pleasing result leaves no doubt as to why Aesop Rock chose the group to accompany him on his currently-running, 42-city tour. Fans can hear more on DTS’ critically-acclaimed Anx LP, available on iTunes as of July 24.
