yeah i've been waiting on this album for like a year and a half it feels like lol. album drops 1/18, was hoping it would be sooner but we're getting this and new aesop back to back so i can't complain



There are two Blockheads.

There is the Blockhead that has been a fixture of the electronic music scene for more than since his 2004 Ninja Tune debut Music By Cavelight; putting out a string of critically acclaimed albums and touring with everyone from Diplo to Amon Tobin and Kid Koala.

Then there is the rap producer Blockhead, whose collaborations with Aesop Rock-Labor Days, None Shall Pass- are part of indie hip-hop canon. The veteran who collaborated with luminaries like Cage, Illogic and Blueprint but also made memorable records with then little-known artists like Despot and billy woods early in their careers.

Free Sweatpants is the first time the two Blockhead’s connect, in what is really the most appropriate form. A mixtape-esque album that pairs his narrative-driven solo aesthetic with a team of rappers that thrive in Blockhead's layered, melodic sound. Aesop Rock, Tree, Breezly Brewin, Open Mike Eagle, Homeboy Sandman, Armand Hammer, Vic Spencer, Hemlock Ernst, MarQ Spekt, and billy woods round out the guest list.

"It's really something I have been wanting to do since way back in 2002 but then other things picked up and I just never got around to it" Blockhead explains, "but I felt like this was a good time for it. These are artists I actively listen to, so it was exciting to make just based on that".


TRACKLIST:
1. Dream On
2. Slippery Slope ft. billy woods, Open Mike Eagle, Breezly Brewin
3. Kiss The Cook ft. Aesop Rock
4. Rock'em Sock Hop*
5. Frank ft. Tree
6. Weeping Willow ft. Blockhead
7. Deeperstill ft. Homeboy Sandman
8. By Myself Meeting
9. Be Safe ft. Armand Hammer
10. Favorite Chair ft. Vic Spencer
11. Tinder In The Time of Cholera
12.Let Them Eat Hate ft. Marq Spekt
13. Blue Veil ft. Hemlock Ernst
14. Make America Gape Again*

why lol

he's never done a producer album/comp before and it's something he's wanted to do for over a decade. this is exciting, but maybe part of that is because i'm a fan of literally every single rapper featured on here.

that's a good question selah, back when he first announced the tracklist i don't remember seeing that on there but he did include the mighty jones in that list of features which is another one of his projects. dont see the mighty jones anyway on this official tracklist so that's the only thing i can think of aside from him actually rapping himself lol.

afaik woods has never really spoken in detail about what happened but apparently privilege completely ghosted billy woods while they were working on cape verde, as in he straight up disappeared from the face of the earth. woods said he mightve given up on rapping entirely if willie green wasn't there to help, because they had put all of this work in and it was going to be for nothing. woods said privilege called and apologized much later on and that privilege made some poor choices without really elaborating on it. obviously woods and willie green managed to pull it together and make a great album, but that's about all i know.

They ask him about it here. But he doesn’t elaborate. He just says the song says it all.

I hoped for instrumental because his albums are some of my favourites of any genre ever, I don't doubt this will be dope but I wanted another music by cavelight.

i agree about blockhead, the music scene was the last instrumental album he put out that i really loved. his production when he collabs with other rappers has always been consistent though.

tippi u have any idea why billy woods and bond never work together anymore either? they were a great combo on the early backwoodz stuff. he also seemed to disappear around the release of cape verde???

what really did happen at the cape???

(grabs chin and bubble pipe and looks suspect up & down)

yup, just as i suspected, tippi knows way more than he's telling us about

spill the beans kid

what happed to the reavers?? where is goldenchild be? probably old enough to be golden man now lord we're getting old!
