B. Dolan Kill The Wolf on LP
Dark, raw, and confrontational, B. Dolan's sophomore Strange Famous Records effort Kill The Wolf reinforces his status as a complex lyricist and high powered rhyme spitter, dedicated to his vision and heedless to trends. Staunchly political and fearlessly personal, Kill The Wolf brings the best techniques from B's catalog into a new era in terms of scale and production value.
The new album features a cast of carefully chosen collaborators, including such wide ranging talent as Aesop Rock, Buck 65 and Kathleen Stubelek of Circle Takes The Square, as well as old friends Buddy Peace, Alias, and Cecil Otter of Doomtree. It would be easy for an album to go astray amidst such varying styles, but Dolan stays in firm command as the expert conductor, driving the album's layered and visionary sound.
Kill The Wolf sets out with a goal of demolishing the boundaries of what was previously thought possible in a B. Dolan record; bringing the best techniques from his catalog into a new era of production value by fusing live guitars, analog synths, violins and upright bass with formidable vocals and intricate lyrics. Five years after shaking the foundations of underground rap with his Fallen House, Sunken City LP, B. Dolan emerges from the earth, battle-tested, clear-eyed, and sharper than ever.
