Mr. Lif & L’Orange – The Life And Death Of Scenery [Album]

George Orwell once prophesized, “if you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.” The latest EP from L’Orange & Mr. Lif, The Life and Death of Scenery, conceives a chimerical “lighthearted dystopia” just far enough from modernity to breathe easily, but close enough to make you consider relocating to that cave in the forest. In this collaboration with the eccentric North Carolina producer, L’Orange, Lif imagines an adjacent future called the “last society,” where culture has been obliterated and physical survival has taken precedence over art. Released through a partnership between Adult Swim and Mello Music Group, the duo’s latest opus opens with one of four addresses from “The Narrator” (played by The Daily Show’s Wyatt Cenac). These Big Brother missives capture a world where the, “books are all burned, the vinyl has been melted, and the remaining art catapulted over the city walls.” The mere act of whistling is cause for the guillotine. It’s the rap analogue to Fahrenheit 451, 1984, or a Brave New World, where the Soma is uncomfortably soothing and the sunshine eerily abundant. The former Def Jux legend inhabits on the role of The Scribe, frantically showing the post-apocalyptic survivors the power of what’s been lost. It attacks those who value disposable art over the timeless; it articulates the necessity of preserving culture; it lampoons the absurdity of attempting to destroy one of the most immutable qualities in mankind. In L’Orange’s words, the collaboration is “a

L’Orange & Jeremiah Jae feat. Homeboy Sandman – Ignore The Man To Your Right [Video]

Deep kick drums, ticking hi-hats, irregular rhythms, and Victrola static all over golden age vocalizations combine to provide the black & white soundscape over which Chicago emcee Jeremiah Jae delivers deadpan lyrics. Stones Throw spitter Homeboy Sandman ties his verbals to the track on the second verse to complete the unsettling song. Taken by itself L’Orange & Jeremiah Jae’s singles leave listeners adrift in an undefined world of prohibition rap – a artistic Hiphop version of 1930s gangster films. But as fans of L’Orange already know, making sense of the story as each piece of the puzzle unfolds is part of the experience. “The Night Took Us In Like Family” out now.

L’Orange & Kool Keith – Time? Astonishing (Instrumentals) [Audio x Download]

Departing from the familiar noir sound that L’Orange has developed, his collaboration with legendary MC Kool Keith breaks new ground into the surreal and futuristic. Creating lush and odd textures, L’Orange finds a new design in a hybrid sound of old time radio and 70s experimental music. Time? Astonishing… Instrumentals! by L'Orange & Kool Keith

L’Orange & Kool Keith – Time? Astonishing! [Album Stream]

L’Orange and Kool Keith hit us with their dope collabo project “Time? Astonishing!”. Released on Mello Music Group, “Time? Astonishing!” is the latest dimensional warp from hip-hop’s premiere astral traveler. His union with MMG producer L’ Orange finds him exploring uncharted terrain: choppy volcanic rock planets, ice glacier moons, new surgical procedures, and fresh rappers to toss into the ether. The scalpel remains eternally sharp. The album is about a man in the early 20th century who is a bored explorer and finds technology to go into the future – but he does so without any sense of adventure. He travels through time as if he is traveling to Tuscaloosa. He is then hospitalized as insane and then goes into suspended animation (a metaphor for his subconscious while sedated in the hospital). The adventure begins only after the album is finished, the record is all the thoughts and introspection before things really begin. Absurdist. Time? Astonishing! by L'Orange & Kool Keith
