Fresh Track: Cicada Shells “All Bones Do Remain”

by @thoughtontracks

all-bones-do-remain

I’d be the first to admit that I’ve been largely indifferent to the local hip hop scene here in Indianapolis, but considering Thought On Tracks is a blog largely dedicated to Indiana bands and labels, writing about local acts is something I’d like to do more of.  Cicada Shells is a group I’ve been paying attention to largely because of Defame, the production half of the group.  His evolving brand of spacey glitch-hop is the type of forward thinking production I love and his beat for “All Bones Do Remain” is one of his best yet.  I was less familiar with Lorax, the MC half of Cicada Shells, but his strong, visual performance here ensures I’ll be checking for him from here on out as well.  If the group’s upcoming album is on the level of this single, it has the potential to be one of best hip hop albums of the year in a year stacked with great releases.  Stream or download the single (and the remix) below and get hip to one of the best reasons to pay attention to the Indy hip hop scene.
