    When I was trying to explain Shabazz Palaces track "Swerve... The reeping of all that is worthwhile (Noir not withstanding)" to a friend, I called it a hip-hop acid trip gone to hell. It's the arguable best track off of one of the top albums of 2011, Black Up, but it sounded like the soundtrack to a Hunter S. Thompson mental breakdown in the inner-city. Shabazz Palaces have put this same touch on Philadelphia rapper Lushlife's song "Hale-Bopp Was the Bedouins" (which already sounds like it could be a Shabazz Palaces title). If the idea of dark hip-hop that is melting and disappearing around your ears sounds like a good time, check out Palaces excellent remix while we all wait with bated breath for their next album.
