The Untouchables (beat by Man Mantis hook by greencarpetedstairs) by sole... published on 2012/10/09 23:41:33 +0000 The Untouchables is a first hand look back on the prospects of class war and revolution in the US through the lens of the occupy movement and beyond. The song explores police repression, the perils of reformism, and sings the praise for lost causes everywhere. When you take power back from the state, free spaces are created, and as greencarpetedstairs croons on the hook, no matter what happens (jail, beatings, etc.) "they can't hurt you." The beat produced by Man Mantis is a slow, trappy, self immolating cop car joy-ride, minus the alarm sounds. A Ruthless Criticism of Everything Existing drops 11/13 via black canyon music. A Ruthless Criticism of Everything Existing is an album about resistance, power, global revolution, philosophy and is Sole’s first solo album in 7 years. The album title is lifted from a Marx letter by the same name. This is an avant guard hip-hop album taking the rap-as-critical-theory aesthetic that sole have been developing over the past few years with the Nuclear Winter Mixtapes to a more concrete and original musical format. Following up on the critical success of "Hello Cruel World," "A Ruthless Criticism Of Everything Existing," is the next logical step in this development of rap music; it is challenging & sometimes poppy while pushing things in a more experimental, belligerent, and militant direction. Like previous sole solo albums, ARCOEE has a multitude of collaborations with various producers. Featuring: Busdriver, Alias, Open Mike Eagle, Alias, Ryan Hemsworth, Ausker, Factor, Man Mantis, & More.
