Rock Konducta Vol. 1, the latest installment of Madlib’s “Beat Konducta” series, is available now. The catch? It’s only in vinyl format, with digital and CD versions coming in Spring of 2014.
The first leak “Black Widow” dropped back in October and now we’re gifted with leak number two “Hold the Organ.” Take a listen below.
The latest album finds it’s inspiration in various worldwide underground rock scenes from the 1960s through the 80s: American psychedelia, Germany’s Krautrock, acid-soaked Spanish prog-rock and synthy, early-80s oddities. Tied together by Madlib’s unique sensibility, these music scenes coalesce into a new whole.
