AUDIO: Elucid “Bird Eat Snake / The Love Offering” LP

elucid-BES

If you’re not from New York City or haven’t been here recently you probably think Brooklyn is something like it was in the movie “Do The Right Thing” when in reality it’s becoming more an more like the TV show “Portlandia.” For better or worse  the greatness and grit that Biggie and Jay-Z rapped about has been supplanted by a place where descriptors like gentrified, artisan, craft, yuppy, hipster, artsy are more apt.

Native Brooklynite Elucid gives us a glimpse at new Brooklandia as dystopia on his ambitious new album Bird Eat Snake / The Love Offering. Decidedly dark and abstract the album is to BK circa 2013 what Cannibal Ox’s Cold Vein was to post 9/11 NYC in the early aughts. Give the album a listen below and cop it on Bandcamp.
