First off, thank you for including Shabazz Palaces, but why in the fuck did you put OF in the RIYL? Is that some kind of stupid joke?
Don't get me wrong, I like them both, but to say they are similar in any way is an insult to Shabazz Palaces. The way OF is talked about here you are turning listeners away from a much more sophisticated, forward-thinking and talented group than OF.
Shabazz Palaces debut record is one of the best things released this year - don't let this list fool you.
Haha, no. Maybe it's a lazy comparison, but a) there aren't really all that many accurate comparisons-- Shabazz Places is one of the more unique acts around and b) I think there is a level of abstraction and minimalism to what they do that is similar to many of Odd Future's recordings-- it's not as left-field as stuff like Odd Nosdam and cLOUDDEAD, but it's not Drake pop-rap either. I thought my selection would at least entice some people to click on the little play button. Of course, like all complaints about RIYLs, yours fails to offer a better alternative. In any event, I switched it to Doc Oc.
