A word from PDP's resident word-haver, Storm Davis:
The plan was to wait to assault your grill with this entry until an official album release party was in the works, but SD has grown impatient with too little of his world being blessed by the sounds that slam through his speaker cones on an every-other-day basis. So get ready for a blessing, readers.
Those of you who have experienced the PDP mixtape releases Nothing Stays Gold and Shoot For The Stars, Hit The Ceiling, or have been to any one of about 80% of our shows in the past 2.5 years, have had the opportunity to witness Labeless Illtelligence, our beat-battering brethren who split time between PDP's hometown of Providence and Labeless leader Cas Uno's homebase of New Bedford.
Well, here's the thing: Labeless Illtelligence includes a gent named Esh The Monolith (see "Out Of Order Border Patrol", "Cops & Crooks", and the new "Swinger Status"). Esh The Monolith has released his debut album. And it is excellent.
SD is partial to Esh because he attended his first game at Yankee Stadium with the man, and it was the last time he saw Jason Kendall in an A's uniform. And because they've sat on the seashore and eaten seafood together. Seahorse seahell. Pause.
SD is partial to "The World's Smallest Violin", the closing song on Esh's album, because it reminds him of the end of an Eighties movie. SD is partially retarded.
None of these things change the fact that The ADDventures of an E.ccentric S.uper H.ero is a great album, and you should make it the next CD you purchase.
And if you're in Providence, you can do that tonight, and catch a Labeless performance while you're at it:
Friday September 5th 2008
72 Richmond Street
Providence RI 02903
Doors @ 9PM
This is the last show on the latest Labeless mini-tour, and Cas Uno has been maintaining a customarily hilarious blog detailing their jaunt here. Complete with photographs and impenetrable slang galore.
Esh is awesome.
Labeless is awesome.
Buy Esh's album.
Go to the Labeless show tonight.
I'm Storm Davis, and I approve this music.
