You know the day is gonna go well when it starts off with some brand new music from The Seshen. And with a song title taken from the historical fiction novel by Ayi Kwei Armah, the Bay Area collective share the story of self-entitled conquest.
Seasons addresses the individual who believes he has a calling to attain what is rightfully his but loses himself in the process.
You might remember me introducing The Seshen back in January for one of our most-recent (2)Dope To Sleep On posts. Left with only three songs to jam with over the past two months has had me wanting more. Thankfully the seven-piece Bay Area band comes through with their debut full-length! And after one solid listen they didn’t disappoint in any sense of the word. Check it out for yourself after the jump and cop it here.
I believe I’ve said this before but whatever… whenever my man Tunji suggests I listen to something new I dive right in with open ears. What can I say? On top of his ability to rhyme, the man just has a great ear for music. Case in point… The Seshen. A seven-piece band (led by vocals from Lalin St. Juste and Akasha Orr) straight out of the Bay Area. Citing Animal Collective, Erykah Badu, Little Dragon and J Dilla as some of their major influences, you get a taste of just about everything within their music. And while they’ve only released three songs (to my knowledge)… their debut album (which is set for a February release) is sitting mighty high on my anticipation list. Do yourself a favor and take a listen below.
