Editorial Reviews

While on tour supporting his album, indie rapper/producer Aesop Rock wrote a fan email to folk singer/songwriter Kimya Dawson. A few years later they reconnected during the creation of a arts-and-oddities blog, which in turn sparked the pair's collaborative musical efforts. After appearing on each other's respective recent solo records, both found more worth pursuing within the group dynamic, and The Uncluded were hatched. Their debut album Hokey Fright was recorded over the course of a year using a variety of locations and devices, from voice memo recorders to fleshed out studios.

Though said with much more finesse than myself; that statement from Kimya Dawson seems to sum up this LP quite well; though simply chalking it up to personal psychiatry would definitely undersell this disc

For the uninitiated; The Uncluded is the pairing of underground hip-hop legend Aesop Rock and his good friend Kimya Dawson, who has come to some prominence for her twist on folk music through acts like The Moldy Peaches and her work on the Juno soundtrack. The two genres being blended here may seem to clash at first glance; but here Aesop and Kimya really do a great job of melding them into something truly unique and engaging. The droning flow of consciousness from Aesop weaving in and out of Kimya's punch in the gut style lyricism and guitar strumming on the track "Earthquake" is a prime example of this.

This is an album recorded by two people coping with heavy burden of how death and loss weigh on the consciousness, and handling with the resulting feelings of emptiness and loneliness; but that's not to say its depressing. Yes; some tracks can get very dark (TV on 10) and some paint a picture of pain and desperation that could deservingly bring a tear to the eye (Teleprompters), but they're rarely without a sense of hopefulness; and that is what prevailingly comes through by the end of each track.

Overall this LP is worth your money, and better yet your time and attention. Aesop and Kimya have truly broken musical ground here and have (hopefully) opened up the field for more acts of this nature to grace our ears in the future; and much more intimately have created a set of songs that anybody dealing with any sort of emotional trauma (or even not) could find solace in; and that in and of itself is priceless.

Great album. I really enjoyed the music - a great combination of Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson. I was planning on buying this for a while and was enticed by Amazon.com's offer of a free MP3 copy as well since the CD drive on my computer is kind of broken and I wanted the CD in my iTunes as well.. Disappointed to find out that the free copy is a completely censored version that blanks out any sort of swear word or "inappropriate" word - like pee for example. The censoring totally ruins some of the songs - at least the MP3 part was free!! The CD is not censored and is just dandy.

If you enjoy Aesop Rock's music you should definetly check this out. I've recently discovered Aes Rock through listening to other underground hp-hop artists. This CD is not your typical hip-hop album but a folk/hip-hop hybrid. And it works! The music is very engaging and down-to-earth. I really enjoyed the female vocals of Kimya Dawson. Her and Aes make a great folksy rap duo. The lyrics are beyond amazing! Give this a whirl!

Aesop and Kimya are a dementedly awesome combo of spoken word/singing/weirdness. I highly recommend you really like one or the other a lot before you delve into this. Delicate Cycle is a complete gem.

And in conclusion....
This album is great. Its different, but I like different.
I love it because I've always liked the couple depressing songs on Aesop Rock's albums. They are always the songs with the most heart.
Yes, this isn't the regular Aesop Rock, but that's why I like it. He's an artist, and when you confine an artist to one genre you start squeezing the artist out of them.
I hope The Uncluded has a few more albums in them.

Ok, it came out in 2013, but I didn't pick it up until late 2014 and it didn't really click with me until early 2015.

I've listened to this album at least 50 or more times now. It was a bit too weird for me the first time I heard it but I was intrigued enough to give it a couple more spins. By the third time, I was in love. For me, this is Aesop's most cohesive work. Kimya provides an excellent balance to his lyrical onslaught, and she's quite the lyrical beast in her own right.

I constantly find new meaning in the incredibly layered and often cryptic lyrics. Love this album.

I used to want so bad for Kimya to do a collab with Eyedea, then after he died I was thinkin to myself like damn, I wonder what other rapper I love would make a great collabo with her...I ended up landing on Aesop Rock and by some divine occurrence of events it actually ended up happening, and to me it sounds beautiful...A long awaited gift from the majesty of Art, thank you...

Remember the first time you had hot dogs and apple sauce? Oh yeah, now you know what I'm talking about. If you don't eat this up and then leave with a smile on your face then seek help, something is wrong.
