Ish has finally joined one of the 'social me-diums'; it's definitely great for fans to have a direct link to the man's onlinear recommendations. so far he's posted some great songs and pics of him with stars back in the day. He announced the leap in this typically poetic piece. ANyone hae any idea what "the 167" refers to?

Lese Majesty Review

This review is in accordance with my sentiments. If you don't already know, NPR is streaming it as of today but u really need to pre-order this from Sub Pop and get the limited edition 7 "Palace Slide" free.

Lese Majesty LP: July 29

(Lion & Serpent by James Northcote, 1799)

The new LP is called Lese Majesty and is out on Sub Pop on July 29th in the USA; a few days later in Europe.

The title (meaning the crime of violating majesty, or an offence against the dignity of a reigning sovereign) seems to be a reference to what is happening in hip hop right now, and what has been happening for "all those years that thuggin went mainstream", but you might also take it more generally (what is happening in popular culture, or what we are doing to the world, or not being true to yourself) or more specifically (the recent hip hop grammy award)

Nothing else is known about it other than that illustrator Chad VanGaalen is working on a video clip. Also, it was recorded at their new self-built studio in the hometown.
