Lese Majesty is the second album by Shabazz Palaces, the Seattle-based experimental hip-hop group featuring Palaceer Lazaro (aka Ishmael Butler, formerly of Digable Planets) and Fly Guy Dai (aka Tendai Maraire). Lese Majesty is not a launching pad for the group s fan base increasing propaganda. It is a series of astral suites, recorded happenings, shared. It was recorded and produced by Shabazz Palaces at at Protect and Exalt Labs, a Black Space in Seattle, Washington.
Top Customer Reviews
The music delves into this space with grace, and panache highlighted by brilliantly conceived sonic palettes that overall are much less rigid and electro-y and more melodic with constantly shifting textures and freer more fluid song-structures and vocals steeped in echo-y reverb reminiscent of dub's cavernous soundscapes and strutting rhythms. Its not your typical radio-fare; its an adventurous, rewarding sonic excursion that will certainly take you on a different path and leave you with a few things to chew on. Highly Recommended.
