I feel as though my respect for Aesop Rock's immense talent is too often forgotten. The mind gets cluttered with the latest indie ditty or the newest trendy mashup. and people like Ian Matthias Bavitz aka Aesop Rock - those who are consistently some of the best, most inventive artists around - somehow get lost [...]

“A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.” -Willy Wonka Aesop Rock – “Cycles to Gehenna” Something tells me that after this video, urban ballet is going to be come the hottest new trend. Bob Mould - "The Descent" We all know work can be tough, and everyone has their own ways of escaping the rat race. Bob Mould, for example, goes full-on Bear Grylls and creates his very own sanctuary in the woods. Fast Planet - "Columbus" [...]

As Vice described it, it features a "gaggle of badass ballerinas" and a number of SF snapshot ("What up North Beach!?"). Read Chris Deline's in depth review of Skelethon , as he grapples with Aesop's poetic lyricism.
Rebellious black Swan Ballarinas meet the cold streets of New York and a musty abandoned warehouse. In other news, Aesop Rock has grown a long biker beard.
Aesop Rock 's beautifully shot new video for ‘Cycles to Gehenna,’ features a dazzling gallery of silhouetted dancers, clouded in smoke and constant motion, and a distant Aesop splitting verses in the dark shadow of a warehouse. The track comes from Aesop’s latest, Skelethon , and truly manages to capture the listener even more with the engrossing video. Check it out below and grab the album today.
Aesop Rock has definitely made his mark on the hip-hop world for one lifetime, both as a producer and an artist, and he's not showing any signs of stopping any time soon. His latest critically acclaimed album, Skelethon, came out this past July. "Cycles to Gehenna" is the third track on the album and the video, an interesting one to say the least, debuted this morning. I always find music videos fascinating and I feel like they're a very useful tool for artists to use to portray the message of the song to the listener. Check this video out [...]
Ballet and hip-hop? Sure. Directors Ben Fee and Pete Lee make it work in the video for Aesop Rock's "Cycles to Gehenna," one of the strongest tracks on the rapper's strong return "Skelethon" (Rhymesayers). Aesop Rock's sixth album (and first sine 2007) came out in July, and the imagery and emotion in his prosaic flow is generally all the visual stimuli you need. But there's something adagio about this one. On your toes. ||| Live: Aesop Rock performs Sunday, Sept. 2, at FYF Fest.
But with the throttle screwed on there is only the barest margin, and no room at all for mistakes. It has to be done right...and that's when the strange music starts, when you stretch your luck so far that fear becomes exhilaration and vibrates along your arms. You can barely see at a hundred; the tears blow back so fast that they vaporize before they get to your ears. The only sounds are wind and a dull roar floating back from the mufflers. You watch the white line and try to lean with it...howling through a turn to the right, [...]
I'll go out on a limb and say that Aesop Rock's new video for "Cycles To Gehenna" will be the best video you watch today. Aesop uses ballerinas that could kick your ass, motorcycles, smoke hazes, and a big beard to add fresh visuals to one of the stand out cuts from his recently released LP, Skelethon . Watch it below.

Dinosaur Jr. have released a video for their song "Watch the Corners," the first from their forthcoming album I Bet On Sky , due out September 18 via Jagjaguwar.

Check out the video, which is a good reminder why we love Dinosaur Jr. and why dads are awesome, below: Watch [...]
