No Sleep for Brooklyn

Indie-rap fireplug El-P returns, as bombastically bleak as ever

Meline, and Def Jux, and I'll Sleep When You're Dead are thus hunting big, ominous, carnivorous game. "I happen to be one of those cats who has the unfortunate reality of being incredibly tuned in to all that bullshit and weirdness," he says. "I teeter on the edge of fuckin' alcoholism and drug addiction and insanity and fuckin' sexual addiction and all this shit. [Accepts margarita from cute waitress.] Thank you babe. Not only do I naturally do that, but unfortunately I think it's actually what I should be doing."

So enjoy the new El-P record. This is gonna hurt him more than it hurts you. Plenty of pain for everyone, though. Even the Mars Volta guys.

This gentleman is very, very angry
