Ockham's Blazer: Vinyl LPLPFFINC102IE
Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Label: Fake Four Inc.
Release Date: 3rd February
A real sleeper album from 2022 this, well, consider us awake with the sound of dark brooding brassy jazz with drums like thunder bursting holes in the dark grey clouds. It's off-kilter, it's disorientating, it grooves and slaps, it's possibly the best hip hop jazz record you didn't hear from back in 2022.
For those who dig: The Comet Is Coming, Run The Jewels, Adrian Younge, Theon Cross...
