ORGAN THING: A taste of Holy Joy, Daveed Diggs and 43 years ago in a field in Reading…

giant_diggsAre we really sure? Today’s thing is a musical box of things, a box with a musical thing on the bottom of it (once the Mellotron has been tunedup again). A box full of musical things (and hogweed seeds) that have landed from the land of the bands of wholesome joy…

Deathbomb Arc, the label that brought the world some of the first releases from acts such as Death Grips, clipping., Black Pus, Foot Village, and Julia Holter, has dropped two new cassettes today: Daveed Diggs ‘Small Things To A Giant’ and They Hate Change ‘Cycles’.

Daveed Diggs is the frontman of Sub Pop signed experimental rap group clipping. He is also one of the stars of the current Broadway musical hit ‘Hamilton’. His solo cassette is a loving homage to his home, the California Bay Area. Combining Daveed’s blisteringly quick and intellectual flow with ecstatic and joyful beats, this is a far cry from the dark territory of clipping.
