Shabazz Palaces "#Cake"
Published Jun 23, 2014Next month, Shabazz Palaces are set to return with their new album Lese Majesty. We've already heard the song "They Come in Gold," and now we get another taste of the record with "#Cake."
The song kicks off sounding like Shabazz Palaces' take on a standard ratchet anthem, complete with single-note synth runs and bouncing bets, along with a refrain about eating cake. Of course, things get subverted quickly with weird synths, evolving beats and complex lyrics.
Check out "#Cake" below. Lese Majesty will be available on July 29 via Sub Pop.
