Parallel Thought Art Of Sound on LP + CD
Fresh off their album 2012 Attractive Sin featuring Del the Funky Homosapien, Parallel Thought released their first true solo effort, Art of Sound later the same year. This full-length project was produced by Drum, Knowledge, and Caness, who are most noted for producing G-Side's Rabbits. Art of Sound is a sound museum curating lush landscapes that not only stays true to, but also builds upon the integrity of Parallel Thoughts earlier works, featuring "classic sounds with rich layers of funk, soul, jazz, blues and rock sampling that honor the genre-bending experimentation prevalent in ‘80s and early-'90s hip-hop" (Billboard Magazine). Though the album is almost entirely instrumental, highlighting the group's progression of production skills, emcees Breeze Brewin from the Juggaknots, Alabama's Gene the Southern Child, and Caness make guest appearances.
