The Uncluded' s debut album, Hokey Fright , is an oddly delicious mix from two odd performers. Kimya Dawson and Aesop Rock share off-center delivery and lyricism. Their mix of irreverent folk rock and eloquent rap isn't a likely pairing, but thankfully Dawson and Ace are just that good. Hokey Fright was born from talking about “mortality” and wanting to explore questions that have no answers. The result is a very adult meditation on life, backed with a playful sense of childlike wonder. The most introspective of the tracks, [...]

When we first heard that Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson would be collaborating together, we didn't really know what to expect. But after further examination, it was clear that these two, despite having quite different styles, their creative output was perfectly similar. Discussing topics of mortality, family and friendship, these two quirky artists have created a drastically different blend of music from what we are used to. We think it came out pretty well, though, and you can now peep it in its entirety before it drops May 7 via Rhymesayers. Head over to the [...]

Making music that makes the listener actually feel good or positive about life ain't easy. Too often, it comes across as contrived or childish, leaving the listener even more jaded than before. But every now and then, a duo like the Uncluded (Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson) comes along to shatter that stereotype with singles like "Delicate Cycle". It's a feel-good track with a playful, albeit meaningful, edge to it with some equally off-center visuals to boot. Watch below.
Aesop Rock BY JORDAN MAINZER Score one for the purists. Traditional hip hop triumphed at Metro Chicago on March 4 as MCs Aesop Rock and Rob Sonic spat in front of a real live DJ. Sure, there was a Mac laptop on stage. It’s basically unavoidable today. But DJ Big Wiz mostly scratched his turntable records as Aesop performed songs from his now expansive career, including highlights from last year’s Skelethon LP. Despite the conspicuous absence of quintessential Aesop Rock almost-hit “ Daylight ”, the show was what all [...]
