SpaceGhostPurrp at BV-SXSW 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Miami rapper/producer SpaceGhostPurrp, who played our hip hop stage at Hotel Vegan this past SXSW, is set to releases his debut commercial album, Mysterious Phonk: The Chronicles of SpaceGhostPurrp, on his new label, 4AD, a label otherwise best known for their post-punk/goth/dream pop/etc output. You can grab a new track from the album, "No Evidence," via a widget below, and check out the new video for "The Black God." The album artwork and tracklist are also below.

SpaceGhostPurrp will be making a few appearances in NYC this week before heading overseas for his first European tour later this month. The NYC dates include the Rustie-headlined Shortcuts party at Santos on Tuesday (5/15) and The Standard Hotel on Wednesday (5/16). Tickets for the Santos show with Rustie are still available.

There was also an SOB's show announced in some places, but that show is probably not happening. The Santos show will be the second time SpaceGhostPurrp played a "Shortcuts" party.

sad very sad to learn of such bands being signed to 4AD

once one of the best labels out no different from matador

12:07. Your sense of history is amazing. You do realize that 4AD was basically built on M/A/R/R/S "Pump Up The Volume", right?

I'm not 12:07 and I appreciate your sentiment that 4AD has always had musical range 12:24 but I do think saying that the label was "built on" that one tune is a bit of an overstatement. Before that, they had decent commercial successes with Cocteau Twins, This Mortal Coil, Wolfgang Press, etc.

Yes, I overstated... but I'm pretty sure that that song floated them for years. Maybe "I'll Melt With You" too. The point is that I think 12:07 perhaps doesn't understand the 4AD aesthetic as much as he thinks he does.
