"The Blob is 32 minutes of beats & sounds that have otherwise been orphaned by their hell-bound father. It is largely unmixed and occasionally offensive. James Lynch played bass on the one that sounds like an elf orgy. Allyson Baker played guitar on the last one. Mastered by Joey Raia." - Aesop Rock

After 3 years in remission, Hail Mary Mallonhas returned, iller than ever. Comprised of two of the most verbose MC's in Hip-Hop today, Aesop Rock and Rob Sonic... Hail Mary Mallon prepares to unleash their second full-length release, Bestiary. Individually, these two lyricists are well known for wordy expressions eliciting oft-despondent themes. Together, however, they appear to push one another to the limits of humorously witty wordplay, while simultaneously crafting complex rhyme patterns. The very title of the album, Bestiary, was inspired by the fact that they both went into beast mode, here.
The group's hunger comes across in more than just the lyrics, though. With both Aesop & Rob sharing production duties, the album is laden with hypnotic beats ranging from dense & murky to melodic & twisting, all complemented by the cutting precision of turntablist DJ Big Wiz. As if all that wasn't enough, there's also the artwork, a masterpiece taxidermy gallery of outlandish beasts, conceived and illustrated by the talented Coro. For a limited time, this album artwork will be available with 3 different covers to choose from, each depicting a different beast head, on CD and picture-disc vinyl!

The name and album title are inspired by Mary Mallon aka Typhoid Mary, the first person in the U.S. identified as a healthy carrier of the pathogen associated with typhoid fever. Mary Mallon was presumed to have infected 53 people, three of whom died, over the course of her career as a cook. She spent three years in quarantine, which is where she died. Are You Gonna Eat That?is full of powerful dense production and witty word play courtesy of Aesop Rock and Rob Sonic. Add some turntable wizardry from DJ Big Wiz and this trio is destined to be as infectious as Typhoid Mary herself.

Grimace Federation "The Measure In Mixture"
Coming off his latest Rhymesayers release,Bestiary, as part ofHail Mary Mallon,Aesop Rockrecently collaborated with friends, the experimental group from Philly,Grimace Federation. Previously, the two worked together on Aesop Rock's Skelethon album, as well as Aesop's butchered remix of "Bosico", from Grimace Federation's On Velvet album.
Grimace Federation's sonic collages create a symphonic, cinematic, and immense sound. The band's musical foundation could be discovered in the grooves of records from post-rock legends such as Jaga Jazzist, Tortoise, and Stereolab, while latter day influences, like Mogwai and Black Sabbath, and a lifetime of collecting obscure underground hip-hop records notably seep into their symbiotic chaos.
The Measure In Mixture combines spastic krautrock beats with the grandeur of an Ennio Morricone soundtrack on a Boards of Canada sonic landscape. Thislimited edition 12"also features two bass-heavy remixes from Aesop Rock, one of which he also graces with his distinguished brand of dense wordplay and dark sense of humor. Ultimately, a must-have for crate-diggers all over the world.
Limited Edition LP on Transparent Clear Vinyl with White Haze Effect, Includes Free Digital Download Card.

Steamboat (Aesop Rock Remix)
A message from Aesop Rock – "Here is something new - KLUTZ.Occasionally song structure eludes me and it feels good. No problem-solving or pesky hit chorus, just rambling. Klutz is such a moment. I had started a couple things to this beat before sacrificing it to the gods of not-shutting-up, but this seemed a fitting fate. I hope you enjoy it. My longtime video collaborator, Rob Shaw, helped visualize my long-windedness, and I’m excited to have Steve Espo Powers gracing the artwork for the release. Thank you."
"Hot Dogs" MP3
"'Hot Dogs' is a audio/video project celebrating the tangents of a delirious brain over the course of a late-night skate to the store." --Aesop Rock

Song Credits: Written and produced by Aesop Rock Synthesizer by Grimace Federation Mixed by Joey Raia Mastered by Joe LaPorta
"My Belly" MP3
Some years ago, I made a children's song about otters for a project that didn't materialize. It was supposed to surface several times over the years, but never quite made it out there.
You can DL My Belly now for free, and enjoy this wonderful Jeremy Fish otter illustration while listening. Song mixed by Joey Raia.
