Sub Pop’s Maureen Interviews Shabazz Palaces


    Sub Pop has probably the goofiest and funniest new promo tool in these interviews with an old lady named Maureen, who rose to prominence with this interview with J Mascis. Maureen just scored the biggest interview/promotion of her career, interviewing Shabazz Palaces’ Ishmael Butler, and getting probably the most forthcoming interview with Butler since he came back with Shabazz. In the clip, Butler talks his bath products, his jewels, and his studio, and gets hit on pretty heavily by Maureen.


    Consider this video a warning too: Shabazz Palaces’ Black Up, without question this year’s best album so far, is due out on June 28.
