2016 marks the return of wildly surrealist experimental hip-hop group Curse Ov Dialect, back after a 7 year hiatus with a brand new socially concious, zonked-out album called Twisted Strangers, the follow-up to 2009’s critically acclaimed Crisis Tales.
Renowned for their non-conformist costumery and political ethos the enigmatic Australian group has garnered a strong worldwide cult following. Twisted Strangers includes guest appearances from Hemlock Ernst (Samuel T. Herring from Future Islands): watch the video which premiered on Pitchfork here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8A2fGGqKRc),
Curse’s Japanese ambassador Kaigen and Stormtrap from Palestine’s Ramallah Underground.
Twisted Strangers sees them continue further down their own uniqe musical path, revelling in the openness of their eclectic sample concoctions paired with hard but twisted beats. The conventions of hip-hop are used as a foundation to build a unique voice that broaches no comparisons.
