Dälek - Absence (2xLP + CD)
The release of Dälek's third album, Absence, saw the New Jersey hip hop group sharing stages with such well-known artists as Kid606, Isis, Jesu, and many others, and winning over the public with their performances. Absence exposes the limits of all pre-established ideas about musical genre and removes all stylistic hostilities. Its dark, industrial world of metallic, distorted instrumentation reflects its committed, revelatory lyrics. Includes CD containing two previously unreleased bonus tracks.
