Stuck On Repeat: El-P’s “Truth” Movement

Mar 26th, 2007 // 2 Comments

elppp.jpgWhen promo copies of El-P’s I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead were sent out earlier this year, music writers found that their name was uttered repeatedly during each track; as a result, listening to the album was a noisy and confusing (though weirdly ego-boosting) experience. Now that we’ve had more time to listen to a watermark-free edition, we’re just as hooked as everyone else, especially when it comes to brooding numbers like “The Overly Dramatic Truth,” below:

    EL-P’s music never did it for me. His rhymes tend to be too anylitical (read:boring) and not have enough vibe. Unfortunately that’s the whole reason why Underground Alt. Hip-Hop(or whatever) isn’t experiencing as much success as the Indie rockers.

    Yeah, I don’t know what else to say other than this album was worth the five-year wait. And this song, in particular, is the centerpiece.
