Aesop Rock - Cat Food

  • Artist: Aesop Rock
  • Track: Cat Food
  • Producer: Blockhead
  • Album: Cat Food EP

Has it really been more than two years since Aesop Rock last blessed our front page with a fresh feature? As usual, I'm gonna answer my own rhetorical question: yes, it has. Happily for fans of off-kilter beats and head-scratching bars, the underground mainstay has returned to our front page with Cat Food, the title track and latest single off a brand new two-song project. Though the verses Aesop drops over Blockhead's dissonant sample work are every bit as knotty and allusive as fans have come to expect, their braggadocious, tongue-in-cheek tone ensures this cut is a dope listen even sans lyrics sheet. For this record and Bug Zapper, previously available only to fans who purchased the Aesop Rock x Kid Robot collaborative vinyl toy, "Whiskers: The Undead," through Fifth Element, cop the artist's freshly-minted Cat Food EP.
