Doomtree's Lazerbeak announces new album
Riding high off 2011’s No King, Minneapolis hip hop collective Doomtree is flourishing in many facets, with the upcoming release of producer Lazerbeak’s latest record. Lava Bangers, which drops January 24, follows 2010’s Legend Recognize with fresh instrumentals and dizzying interweaving beats. You can get a taste of Lava Bangers with 'Cement Blocks/Knight Fighter,' which pits heavy piano and synth with cascading drums and handclaps galore. Check out 'Cement Blocks/Knight Fighter' below.
