Shabazz Palaces + Tiny Ruins confirm shows at Nice N Sleazy.
New Zealand’s Bella Union signed TINY RUINS have just confirmed a last minute booking at Glasgow NICE N SLEAZY on Wed 3rd SEPTEMBER. We are going to set the place up all nice with cabaret seating and candles so you can melt into her music of quiet, devastating beauty from her latest album ‘Brightly Painted One’
Seattle’s SHABAZZ PALACES have been creating quite a storm around their latest LP ‘Lese Majesty’. A foward thinking triumph of modern hip hop.
See them at NICE N SLEAZY on Fri 7th November.
“These aren’t condescending “Real Hip-Hop” platitudes: this is a call to arms for hip-hop’s creative fringe to snatch the reins from a power structure more interested in self-preservation than the advancement of the culture. The soul of Shabazz Palaces is pairing next-gen sounds with classic brass-tacks show-and-prove emceeing, and Lese Majesty tugs those extremes as far as they’ve ever been pulled; that it never shows signs of wear speaks to the strength of the bond.” [Review, 8.2/ 10] – Pitchfork
“The music is alternately languid and jarring, with melodies mutating or disappearing and Mr. Butler’s cryptic sci-fi raps often receding into the fabric.” [Sunday Arts Feature] – New York Times
