Fake Four beatsmiths Blue Sky Black Death have teamed up once again with Raised By Wolves and Pacific Northwest emcee Nacho Picasso for the full length Lord of the Fly. The 13 track effort is an intriguing juxtapostion of BSBD’s lush atmospherics against Nacho’s punchline-laden delivery. “Naked Lunch,” the first video released from the project, finds Nacho channeling his inner-Raoul Duke on a savage journey to the heart of escapism. Lest you think Nacho is simply crafting another drug rap anthem, the clip closes out with a fitting Dr. Johnson quote that any Fear & Loathing fan will instantly recognize: “He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man.”
Lord of the Fly is available for free download on Bandcamp.
