Denizen Kane ~ “Holdin’ Up The Wall”

While reflecting on a recently released report detailing even more shit that was fucked up about the situation surrounding the killing of Oscar Grant, I wanted to give Denizen Kane some shine. Very simple, dope video directed by Jason Mateo. This is the first new Kane track I’ve heard in awhile (and I’m late on it as I think its been making the rounds since early this year), so here’s hoping that the brother continues to put in work.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I’ve been reading this guy’s stuff recently and have definitely dug it; just finished Omnivore’s Dilemma and have now started In Defense of Food. If you’re interested, I’d recommend checking out Omnivore’s first because In Defense really kind of seems like a sequel, expanding on themes of the first book.

Just some really dope explorations into how food gets to our tables and our whole culture (or lack thereof in the States) of eating. Depressing at times for sure, but his writing style is really easy to read and the guy never came off as preachy or pretentious to me.

Back Again

Sorry for the hiatus, been taking some time out to settle back into the Bay Area. Don’t even know if anyone’s reading this anymore, but we’re gonna keep things rolling either way. Peace.
