1. NEW MUSIC: El-P – “The Full Retard.”

    Heavy new El-P track from his forthcoming Cancer For Cure album via Fat Possum Records – an excellent collision of creeping synth bass, Casio-esque drum track, and an unshakable, sampled Camu Tao hook (“So you should pump this shit like they do in the future” – from “When You’re Going Down”). El-Producto sounding complicatedly ornery as ever (“Maligning my name will holy ark up your squad’s face”), and the mid-song declaration of faux hope greeted by machine gun fire is also a nice touch.
