“Barksdale Corners”

    “Barksdale Corners” sounds like the kind of title a hip-hop artist should use to lay down hometown allegories. And maybe that’s what the latest Shabazz Palaces joint is about; it’s hard to cull anything aside from an omnipresent claustrophobia in the track’s dark atmosphere and sawtooth vocals. The new Sub Pop-signee just dropped this track on the world via a 7-inch only available through Seattle art magazine I Want You, which you can order for the cost of shipping and handling here. [GvB]
