th1rt3en (Pharoahe Monch, Daru Jones, Marcus Machado) - A Magnificent Day For An Exorcism
th1rt3en is the combative new project from legendary Jamaica, Queens rapper Pharoahe Monch joined by musical assassins Jack White drummer Daru Jones + renowned guitarist, Marcus Machado. A dynamic, dizzying exploration of hyper consumerism and political corruption, police brutality and murder, the prestigious trio previously shared album cuts “Fight” (ft. Cypress Hill) and “666 (Three Six Word Stories)” which finds the band musically covering Black Sabbath’s “Hand of Doom”. The band gave their first live performance on their dynamic NPR Tiny Desk Concert, released on Monday in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
th1rt3en has unleashed the searing “Cult 45” single/video a few days before their debut album release and during inauguration week. Monch describes the song as “verbal voodoo” and wants it to speak to an exorcism from hyper consumerism and political corruption, with 45 only as a backdrop for a commentary on the entire system.
