As the release date for Humble Pi fast approaches, Homeboy Sandman and Edan have just offered up another video from the album. The Gut sees the duo submerged underwater – for real & not so real – as Sands delivers his verse over another very Edan-esque beat, with the producer also making a welcome return to the mic. Humble Pi is due for release on 26 October on Stones Throw.

As the much deserved anticipation continues to build for the collaborative album from Homeboy Sandman and Edan, the duo have released a video for #NeverUseTheInternetAgain. The audio for the track first surfaced back in April, before they had announced that they were working on an album together. The video features Edan and Sands working in a computer repair shop together, but one you might want to think twice about using. Keep an eye out for cameo(s) too. The album itself, Humble Pi, is due for release on 26 October via Stones Throw.

Yesterday Stones Throw announced the release date for the long-awaited album from Homeboy Sandman and Edan. The two started working together a few years ago, after meeting at a show they were both performing at, which lead to Edan producing the track Talking (Bleep) on Sandman’s 2016 Kindness for Weakness LP.
Now they have returned with a full-length project, with Edan behind the production and Sandman handling the raps. Grim Seasons is the first taste from the album, with Sandman weaving complex bars over a crazy beat from Edan. It’s all tied together with a great animated video from Kagan McLeod. The album, Humble Pi, is due for release on 26 October.

Surreal scenes in the new video from Stones Throw’s latest signing, Jerry Paper. The genre defying artist is due to release his Like A Baby album later in the year and Your Cocoon is the lead single. Production will come from Paper and Matty Tavares of Badbadnotgood. More info available at the Stones Throw store. The video was made by Steve Smith.

Sudan Archives has blessed us with a new video to coincide with the release of her latest EP. The audio for Nont For Sale surfaced last month, with Sudan drawing inspiration from a banner she found in Ghana that read, “THIS LAND IS NONT 4 SALE”. The Sink EP is out now on Stones Throw.

Anderson Paak and Knxwledge recently released a new video for one of the tracks from their 2016 debut, Yes Lawd! Lyk Dis is arguably one of the highlights from the album and the animated video only adds to the appeal. The animation comes courtesy of Andy Baker who brings life to Rhymezlikedimez’s illustration skills. Yes Lawd! is out now on Stones Throw.

Life is confusing sometimes. Take today when I found out that Homeboy Sandman and Edan had snuck out a new collaboration without much fanfare. The quandary though is that the mood of the song is railing against the internet and it’s many, many pitfalls, while simultaneously making us use the internet to listen to the song. I mean if that isn’t the trappings of modern life in a nutshell, then I don’t know what is.
