Melbourne's hip-hop oddballs Curse Ov Dialect cover all their bases on their new track, a pit-stop on the way to the in-production album that will be their first since 2009’s Crisis Tales. ‘Jubilee’ continues their streak of wielding multilingual samples and bringing a similar multiculti slant to the lyrics, while also showcasing their newfound “psychedelic prog-rock influences.”
It also marks “a kind of rebirth,” Curse Ov Dialect tells M+N: “A celebration of the group’s survival after recent line-up changes and fatherhood. So lots of nappy changing, angst and inspiration. [We] are re-emerging with new material and it promises to be a strange musical sandwich filled with psychedelic prog-rock influences, early-’80s industrial synth and whatever other genres [we] haven’t pillaged as yet.”
With origins extending all the way back to 1994, the costume-loving, arguably “post hip-hop” ensemble have still been visible in the gap since their last album. Producer Paso Bionic debuted his new project Audego with the album Abominable Galaxy in April, and MC Raceless released his debut solo LP The Internal Meddler as a free download in January. They also got interviewed by Stephen Fry and covered, um, John Butler at the 2011 APRAs.
