"This album is about influence, inspiration, perception & reality. Every song was written in an outside environment, so that I could observe the subjects that would become my subject matter. All too often in Hip Hop, reality is limited to that of the artists own, actual experiences. People Hear What They See is my attempt to liberate the MC from those constraints & allow reality to be penned other than my own. Listening to congressmen & lawyers converse on the steps of the supreme court inspired 'American Greed', Watching a couple argue over the phone in a bar inspired 'Maybes'. By having a visual representation of my subject matter, my hopes are that the listener will see them through the worlds & melodies of my songs."

Party Supplies are a one-of-a-kind New York duo. They mash Stratocaster riffs over vaporized drum machine beats to write love songs you’d think were beamed straight from classic rock radio, then lend that same denim jacket soulfulness to collaborations with Action Bronson, Danny Brown and other new school rap heroes. On their debut album Tough Love, PS showcased their knack for postmodern pop songcraft under a haze of lo-fi samples and distortion, but these new remixes go full 1080p HD courtesy of club masters The Knocks and Lazerdisk. “Going Back To New York” gets the fist-pump treatment it deserves, while “Beautiful Girl” is reinvented as a poolside nu-disco stomper. Turn up the hi-fi and zone out...
