On March 20th, El-P will finally release his second album, I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead. I’ll Sleep When You’re Dead is the highly anticipated follow-up to El-P’s much-lauded 2002 debut Fantastic Damage. So, does ISWYD match it’s predecessors brilliance? It’s tough to say; while it takes a while to get going, once it does, there’s no stopping it. At this point I’ll only say that it’s definitely a worthy follow up.
Unsurprisingly, my favorite tracks come from the album’s tail-end. You’ve probably already heard ‘Flyentology’, and I already did a post about ‘Habeas Corpses (Draconian Love)’, so today I’ll give you a taste of the album’s closer, ‘Poisonville Kids’. If there’s one way to close an album, it’s with Chan “Cat Power” Marshall wailing “never, never, never” repeatedly. Enjoy.
