Album Review

Talibam! – “#noschool” – [Critical Heights]

abacus   11/5/2012   7-inch, A Library

Experimental jazz/rock/noise duo Talibam! have moved through all sorts of absurd transformations, but none like their brand of #noschoolrap that we’ve seen in recent incarnations. We have two short tracks here of silly smatterings of danceable grooves set against stumbling lyrical storylines, both with some pretty spot on social critique slyly hidden in the babble. A side gives us some bouncy surf-hop lamenting the downfall of society. B side’s more of a disco cruiser auto-tuned party rap parody. These tracks are for sitting poolside sitting bacardi and coke at the Sandy Balls Resort Motel. Dig it.
