Following up the release to their collaborative project with Ghostface Killah earlier this year, underground hip-hop titans CZARFACE — made up of MC’s Inspectah Deck and Esoteric, as well as veteran producer-meets-DJ 7L — has returned with a brand new LP titled The Odd Czar Against Us.

Continuing to exert their superhero comics interface, the riotous three-piece packs their latest project with high-octane battle rhymes, witty wordplay, and rattling boom bap instrumentals. Inspectah Deck and Esoteric showcase their top-tier lyrical prowess, telling of stomach disasters in fast food restaurants on “Burrito” to upping the ante on their superhero villain portrayals in “Brother Czarquis.” All of this is met by 7L’s eclectic take on otherworldly production — each song creeps like an ‘80s sci-fi horror, brimming with eclectic samples, skittish stutters, and more.

Record Store Day Black Friday is today, and we’ve dropping THE ODD CZAR AGAINST US, our new Czarface album, exclusively on vinyl today. Yes, vinyl only…me & Inspectah Deck on the rapping, 7L & Jeremy Page on the production. When we release music in this era, we tend to launch it on every format simultaneously and let you consume the music as you wish…bump the cd, stream it on Spotify, download it on iTunes, etc. For this one, we’ve returned to the glorious era of vinyl-first and are hoping to bring the listener along for the experience. It’s still the morning here in Boston and I’ve been tagged and messaged and complained-to about not being able to stream this record yet. I get it, and I appreciate your disappointment because I know its born out of enthusiasm for what we do… hold tight. This ODD CZAR release is suicidal in the sense we are expecting you to leave your house, find a record store, use your hard-earned money to buy the record, then take it home to the turntable we assume you have, then unwrap the plastic, thennnn place the record on the platter, and THENNN lower the needle to the groove. AND MANY OF YOU HAVE DONE JUST THAT ? (thank you). This version is avail at all Record Store Day locations including our “home” store @vinylindex in Somerville MA where you can also get the CZARFACE IPA and an exclusive 7” ! You’ll be able to stream/ buy this album in its entirety on all platforms NEXT FRIDAY DEC 6th. For this week though, “The Odd Czar Against Us” is audible on colored vinyl only…and featuring this cover by Lamour Supreme, exclusively for Record Store Day. Enjoy your weekend! #Czarface #recordstoredayblackfriday #recordstoreday2019 #blackfriday
