2Dope To Sleep On: The Seshen

blame it on Shake January 10, 2012

I believe I've said this before but whatever... whenever my man Tunji suggests I listen to something new I dive right in with open ears. What can I say? On top of his ability to rhyme, the man just has a great ear for music. Case in point... The Seshen. A seven-piece band (led by vocals from Lalin St. Juste and Akasha Orr) straight out of the Bay Area. Citing Animal Collective, Erykah Badu, Little Dragon and J Dilla as some of their major influences, you get a taste of just about everything within their music. And while they've only released three songs (to my knowledge)... their debut album (which is set for a February release) is sitting mighty high on my anticipation list. Do yourself a favor and take a listen below.

  • Pops

  • ianism

  • reza

    this is poor

  • who cares

    It's not bad. It's not amazing, but it's far from terrible. Has a very relaxed vibe to it. Only listened to "Oblivion" completely so far, it's all good till they pick up the speed and she's kind of yelling into the mic. 1 minute into "Pieces" and I gotta say I prefer this one over the previous

  • thedude

    dope music. although, i cant help the fact that they look like the cast of a horrible ABC show about high school teachers or some shit

  • jtherapy

    They ared dope.If you diggin this shit shake. You need to peep KING or Quadron!!!

  • Some of the dopest shit you guys have ever posted. It's a damn shame if you can't branch away from hip hop and dig this. If you can't you aren't a fan of music.

    It's dope. But I don't see the point in listening to a song without being able to download it.

  • Energetikk

  • Wade
