“Wonderful” land on Billy’s upcoming LP, “Known Unknowns”.
“Known Unknowns” is Billy Woods’ new album, a follow-up to 2013’s Blockhead collaboration “Dour Candy”. Blockhead is still behind the boards here but there are also a couple beats from his longtime collaborator Aesop Rock. But the center of the whirlwind is still woods, who re-emerges from a two-year hiatus after releasing the avant-garde “Today, I Wrote Nothing” in early 2015. “Known Unknowns” finds the artist on more melodic ground, but still his esoteric, acerbic self, spinning verses equal parts joy and terror, wry wit and blind rage. There are guest appearances from ELUCID (Armand Hammer), as well as Aesop Rock, Homeboy Sandman, Googie, singer Barrie McLain and DJ Mo Niklz. Since Dour Candy, Blockhead has worked with Aesop, Sandman and MarQ Spekt but “Known Unknowns” shows that he and woods have developed their own unique chemistry.
