As of late, Shabazz Palaces have connected with Thadillac on “Shine a Light” and Thundercat on “C.A.Y.A.” They recruit the talents of The Shogun Shot on their newest release, “Julian’s Dream (ode to a bad).” This song sounds like what it feels like to go camping and unzip the tent and step out into the dazzling morning sun. Ishmael Butler and Tendai Maraire are about to drop a classic.

Or two classics: “Julian’s Dream” will appear on Quazarz vs. The Jealous Machines, the “extra-spatial twin” of Shabazz Palaces’ upcoming album Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star. Both projects drop July 14th. Pre-order QvTHM here.

Quotable Lyrics

Peaches are the greatest 
Plums just my favorite
Grapes on my playlist
Honeydew that’s the latest
