Land of the Lotus Eaters
, Halifax rapper, hip-hop scholar and spoken word artist hermitofthewoods’ most recent release combines his talents to create a body of work that is both rap album and manifesto. Rooting itself in musical traditions from classic hip-hop to industrial noise poetics with equal ease, delivering sober reality checks with driving raps, rabble rousing claims, clandestine growls and hopeful affirmations through conspiratorial hymns, LOTLE
asks us to take stock of where we are, where we came from and where we are going as a society. LOTLE
is the kind of album that you hear for the first time every time you listen.
