FROM HIS MYSPACE BLOG:

AUGUST 28! - None Shall Pass! - AUGUST 28!

hey all

here is the press release that was sent out regarding my new record. It will be released on august 28th. tell a friend.

NONE SHALL PASS OUT AUGUST 28th on DEFINITIVE JUX

Responsible for all but revolutionizing the entire face of underground hip-hop in the early portion of this decade with a slew of potent and influential releases such as 2000's Float LP, 2001's monumental Labor Days LP, and 2003's Bazooka Tooth to his most recent EP/book, 2004's Fast Cars, Danger, Fire and Knives, Aesop Rock (aka Ian Bavitz) has proven that resting on his past laurels is all but forbidden. In the last year alone, Aesop has released a 45-minute workout mix for Nike+, a short story in collaboration with visual artist Jeremy Fish, and scored music for two short films. 2007 finds Aesop delivering his next full length album, the highly anticipated None Shall Pass on Definitive Jux.

Created over a 2 year period following his last release, None Shall Pass documents not only a vast amount of personal change that Aesop experienced over this time, but deftly depicts scenes and stories relative to all ages of life. Production is a vital strong point on this album, with the majority of production duties handled by Aesop's longtime partner Blockhead. El-P and Rob Sonic each make offerings, while Aesop himself confidently produces a large portion of his own tracks as well. The duality of Aesop's hectic stream-of-thought coupled with the complex production on this album makes no exception to Aesop Rock's consistent pedigree, blazing a trail far ahead of his peers with an album that will be followed for years to come.


tracklisting for None Shall Pass:

1. Keep Off The Lawn
2. None Shall Pass
3. Catacomb Kids
4. Bring Back Pluto
5. Fumes
6. Getaway Car (feat. Cage and Breeze Brewin)
7. 39 Thieves
8. The Harbor is Yours
9. Citronella
10. Gun For The Whole Family (feat. El-P)
11. Five Fingers
12. No City
13. Dark Heart News (feat. Rob Sonic)
14. Coffee (feat. John Darnielle)

best
a.r.

I'm definately looking forward to this release, I knew it was due this year didnt know when though. Thanks for the heads up. Fast Cars Was Great as was the Nike thing he did lets hope Aes production continues on this line as Bazooka production wise isnt to appealling, good album none the less.

Yes. This will be nothing short of classic, for me.


I want to know about the soundtracks for those two short films.

its not "their", aesop rock is one dude. i assume your refering to labor days as his older stuff, which is really good. i think alot of people got turned off by bazooka tooth, because he produced alot of it, as opposed to blockhead, who did labor days. on the new album though, blockhead did alot of the production again so fans of the older stuff may enjoy it more.

Yeah, I'd like to know too.




It took me a long time, but I think I like Bazooka Tooth most, almost because of the production.

The promo of this album leaked. There are voice overs, but only like once per song. I only just started listening to the album, but it sounds pretty good so far.

I'm liking it a lot.. Fumes is a great song. He seems to have returned more to the Labor Days sound, which in the opinions of most of his fans. But i can't wait to get a real copy of this because that bitch trying to pronounce the girl's name every minute or so is obnoxious... "this promo copy belongs to maglon wosh?"

lol, I love her questioning voice for that name, like whether or not she's pronouncing it right or not.



Well, I'll be listening to this for weeks straight, I'm sure, but so far, from two listens straight through I don't like it as much as BT or even Fast Cars.

who knew rob sonic could spit such ill rhymes. and cage, never dissapoints. its quite a dark album, i wish it wasnt just blockhead producing. more people should have done other stuff. el-p at least should have made more than one...on run the numbers aes just sounds so good over such a layered beat.

overall its a solid album and i think im gunna like it more with each listen
