Published Jun 20, 2012Slakah the Beatchild's recent bar-raising new LP as the Slakadeliqs, The Other Side of Tomorrow, has been receiving praise since dropping digitally earlier this year. The album is about to exist outside of the computer world, though, as it's getting a proper psychical release via the Slakadeliqs' new label home of Do Right Music.
Released last January through Bandcamp and iTunes, the collection will now be treated to CD and vinyl versions on September 18 through Do Right, with distribution being handled by Outside.
Since its release, the critically acclaimed album was briefly crowned the No. 1 album on Bandcamp, and last week it was included on the Polaris Music Prize's long list, which was revealed at the Waldorf Hotel in Vancouver. Slakah himself was in attendance, sort of, as his West Coast press agent arranged a brief chat between some Polaris panel judges and Slakah via a FaceTime call on her iPhone.
