Aesop Rock Announces LP #6 'Skelethon" To Release This July On Rhymesayers

Acerizzle aka Aesop Rock (not to be confused with A$AP Rocky) announced today that his 6th solo album Skelethon will be released on July 10th via indie hip hop giant, Rhymesayers. Skelethon marks the first solo LP in five years since Aesop's last album None Shall Pass was released in 07. The album features guest spots from Ace's Hail Mary Mallon Co-horts Rob Sonic & DJ Big Wiz, as well as wifey Allyson Baker of Dirty Ghosts, Hanni El Khatib, Grimace Federation, Nicky Fleming-Yaryan and his Uncluded partner in crime Kimya Dawson. The new album is 100% produced by Aesop Rock which is awesome as Aesop is coming into his own as a producer, but at the same time sad as we won't hear Aesop spit over any El-P or Blockhead beats this time around. Check out the album's full tracklist below.

1. Leisureforce
2. ZZZ Top
3. Cycles To Gehenna
4. Zero Dark Thirty
5. Fryerstarter
6. Ruby '81
7. Crows 1
8. Crows 2
9. Racing Stripes
10. 1,000 O'Clock
11. Homemade Mummy
12. Grace
13. Saturn Missiles
14. Tetra
15. Gopher Guts

It may be a minute before we get our first taste of Skelethon but this April we will get our first taste of Aesop's upcoming collaboration with singer/songwriter Kimya Dawson, The Uncluded, with Rhymesayers upcoming Record Store Day 2012 Picture Disc. The split 10"vinyl will feature brand new, exclusive and unreleased tracks from Atmosphere called "Someday Soon" and The Uncluded (Aesop Rock x Kimya Dawson) titled "Bats". This release RSD release is a limited run with only 2000 copies, so make sure you get your hands on one. Check out more music from Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson from last year's Daytrotter Session.

[Watch] Hail Mary Mallon - "Breakdance Beach" (Video) x Upcoming Tour Dates w/ Kimya Dawson

Another day, another fresh video from the hip hop trio that is Hail Mary Mallon (Aesop Rock, Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz). Check out the video for HMM's B-Boy friendly single "Breakdance Beach"directed by Alex Tarrant and Justin Metros from their debut album Are You Gonna Eat That? now available on Rhymesayers.  The song's title pretty much explains the concept of the video which includes break-dancers doing their thing on well....a beach. Check out the video from the crew above which features a cute cameo at the end from Kimya Dawson's kid Panda.

Speaking of Kimya Dawson, her and Aesop have announced new shows for their upcoming "A Night With Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson" tour which will also include the rest of the Mallon crew. The upcoming shows will preview new material from Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson's forthcoming solo albums as well as Aesop Rock and Kimya's forthcoming collaboration album which will be dropping this fall.
