The Uncluded "Hokey Fright"
The Uncluded "Hokey Fright"

Cryptic rhymesayer Aesop Rock and Kimya Dawson of The Moldy Peaches have formed a new project, The Uncluded, and will be touring through August in support of the album Hokey Fright due out on May 7 through label Rhymesayers.

The Uncluded have released two fittingly strange and random videos, “Delicate Cycle” and “Earthquake,” which you can view below. The pairing is certainly interesting and objectively disparate from the outside but both artist’s offbeat styles compliment each other and make a warm, contemplative whole; Dawson’s playful folksy picking and sing-songy choruses interlude Aesop’s eclectic, verbose and colorfully encrypted verbal collages nicely. When they sing together, their contrasting vocal phrasings and tones sound like echoes of a harmony swirling as if smoke around some airless room. It is one of the most organic, unique and coolest combinations I have heard.

Pre-order Hokey Fright from Fifth Element and receive a lyric poster and "Delicate Cycle" as an immediate download.
