The Plastic Constellations

The Plastic Constellations
(French Kiss Records)

Abjekt’s favourite crew Doomtree are the leading lights in underground hip hop right now, but their talent knows no bounds. Lazerbeak, one of the producers in Doomtree, has been in a The Plastic Constellations since he was 14, and as they’ve grown together, from supporting Low at 15 to where they are now, releasing their third album, he’s ready to show the world he’s not just a brilliant hip hop beatsmith, he’s a great songwriter and guitarist too.

They’ve signed to Frenchkiss Records, the home of big names such as Les Savy Fav and The Hold Steady, and they’ve recieved glowing reports from all over the world. If you want to know how they’ve crossed boundaries of taste, then perhaps Slug of Atmosphere‘s opinion matters most of all, and when he said that the Twin Cities of St Paul and Minneapolis aren’t big enough to hold their energy, you know you’re onto a good thing.

This is the opening track of their new album, Crusades, and showcases their ability to pen a great tune. So now you know them and have no excuses. Get listening! /
