Sadistik – Flowers For My Father (2013, Fake Four Records)

————————————————————————————————————————-

In conjunction with Fake Four Records, Sputnik Music is proud to present an exclusive stream of the upcoming sophomore LP from Seattle rapper Sadistik.  Flowers For My Father is due for release on Fake Four Records this Tuesday, February 19th in the US.  Sputnik’s recently featured review can be found here: Sobhi Youssef’s Review.

Flowers For My Father marks Sadistik’s first solo album since his 2008 debut, The Balancing Act, and charts his growth in spades. Evolving his style to a more synthesized rendition of a signature cinematic Seattle sound, the new album displays a distinct combination of Sadistik’s complex, vulnerable writing with textured, ambient production handled by the likes of Blue Sky Black Death and Kno of CunninLynguists. Featured guest performances from indie hip hop heroes such as Cage, Deacon The Villain, Astronautalis & more result in his most developed, mature and revealing project to date.

Shortly after the release of The Balancing Act, Sadistik’s father tragically passed. Never one to shy away from heavy topics or keep his personal life personal, Sadistik wrote this album for his late father, choosing to treat each song as an update of what has happened in his life since. This is reflected in writing which delves into depression, romance, heartbreak, optimism and the struggle to make sense of the ever-shifting pieces in the world around him.

Flowers For My Father can be purchased at:

I listened to half of this earlier today and it ruled. I might order the double LP.

Probably going to order on vinyl

Yeah I picked up the CD+3 signed posters as well as the vinyl.

I only took a quick listen so far but honestly this is probably going to be a 5 or very close for me. I absolutely love this dude's music and it seems like this album fixed all the things that prevented his previous releases from being perfect. Very excited how this turned out.

And man, BSBD knocked it out of the park on their songs. The beat in The Beast is unbelievable.

yeah i'm really impressed with the production. that was the main detractor from his last two releases for me... his content and lyricism were solid, but the beats were pretty average on balancing act and art of dying. some of the beats here are still a little suspect, but overall it's a whole new level of improvement.

Jaw dropping release, bought the vinyl. and out of curiosity, what is it that you dislike about emancipator, soby? the beat on searching for some beautiful is perfect

kingsoby1

listened again. that track is probably one of the better emancipator beats, just not a fan though. it's like bsbd lite/ not nearly as good. i can dig on all bsbd solo records, but emancipator's put me to sleep

Not really into Rap or whatever, but one song in and this isn't bad.

Dammit, flash player required. The trivial annoyances of using an ipad

It's sweet that we got an exclusive stream of this. Nice work, Sobhi.

I don't dig this album too much though, to be honest. It all feels a little too monotonous on the first listen.

This album title reminds me of 'Flowers for Algernon' and manages to make me sad without fail
