Seth P. Brundel Devil's Pawn
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: Aesthetics
Part of Beta Bodega Coalition's Algorithm crew, Miami MC/producer Seth P. Brundel earnestly agitates for political and social change without dropping verbal anvils on your noggin. Dead Prez wishes they sounded this militant. Brundel delivers his serious-as-prostate-cancer lyrics as if there's no time to waste. Devil's Pawn has no choruses, just caustic streams of polysyllabic words pouring out of an artist struggling to maintain sanity while obliquely articulating injustices and hypocrisies. As with El-P, you often feel like you're being harangued on Devil's Pawn, but the music's psychedelic and paranoiacally edgy enough to overcome such drawbacks.
