On Tuesday, Open Mike Eagle broke the news that he has a new album on the way. Titled Anime, Trauma + Divorce, the album will feature production from a number of contributors, including Black Milk, Frank Leone, Gold Panda and Caleb Stone, who notches up a few credits including the lead single. Bucciarati is a lively little number with a tasty feature from Kari Faux. OME’s previous collaborator, Jacknife Lee, is the album’s executive producer. Anime, Trauma + Divorce is due for full release on 16 October, along with a limited vinyl run of 1,000 copies (Down to 194 as I write this). Pre-orders and more info can be found on Bandcamp, and you can hear Bucciarati below. Continue reading “Open Mike Eagle ft. Kari Faux: Bucciarati + LP News”
Got the brand new video for you, from that cool cat Open Mike Eagle, which premiered on Stereogum yesterday. Taken from his latest release, A Special Episode Of… EP, Ziggy Starfish is filled with the sort of lines that has earned Open Mike such acclaim from critics and fans alike: “Politicians on strawman missions, stumble into town lookin’ all ambitious… that shit is warpin’ my soul”. The video features Hannibal Burress, as well as a few other cameos from MMG artists in residence. A Special Episode Of… is available now via Bandcamp.
