Skelethon (Clean Version)

Skelethon (Clean Version) by Aesop Rock
Released: Jun 2012
Label: Rhymesayers
With a title and cover art that pays homage to his dead cat Whiskers, Aesop Rock's first solo album in five years is a deep dive into Kerouac-like prose. He stacks tracks like "ZZZ Top," "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Ruby '81" with stray details. The former, a view of teen self-righteousness by carving "Zulu" on "Chucks," becomes "A 3-D frame of exploding brick/ And whiz lines for the locally motion sick." His self-produced beats, a funk-rock squall akin to El-P and Blockhead, don't add much, but it's just as well: Aesop Rock is a vivacious soloist who only needs spare accompaniment to shine.
