Caleb Giles' verses shine on LP "Under The Shade" + live at Elsewhere on 09.19

Caleb Giles believes in free rhythm, as he's explored on his two previous records Tower and There Will Be Rain. His third album, Under The Shade, continues to push the boundaries of poetry in hip-hop; Giles combines soulful lyrics in both spoken word and song with basic beats, and then layers on transporting sounds and voices to expand the atmosphere of the track. The production results in an abstract and almost dreamlike hip-hop testament which feels loose but tight, comfortable but unsettling, and all-around reflective of Giles' take on what it means to be an artist and a human. Take a listen to the track Quicksand (ft. Pink Siifu)" below and don't miss him live tomorrow (09.17) at Elsewhere. - Will Sisskind
