If it’s true that the absence of one sense makes the others more acute, then y’all might want to put on your Blindfolds for this one. Actually, you might want to plug your noses, too—your ears are gonna need all the help they can get unraveling the intricate lyrical flames K. Sparks unleashes on his latest single. Over frequent collaborator Kurser‘s Chipmunk-sampled chants and syncopated rhythm section, Sparks delivers bars so impeccably flowed that it’s easy to miss the knowledge he’s dropping. Complete with an equally acrobatic opening verse by guest spitter Nation, Blindfolds can be found, along with project lead single Autumn Blues and much more, on forthcoming full-length Self Portrait. Previously slated to drop this August, the DJBooth-hosted LP has been pushed forward—yes, forward—and is now set to hit our front page in June.
