Hyperdub label boss Kode9 and frequent collaborator The Spaceape will issue a new EP, The Killing Season, next month. The last time the pair could be found operating together was on 2011's Black Sun LP (during the release of which we discussed the effort and the nature of the artist's collaboration in a lengthy cover story). Furthermore, Kode9 & The Spaceape's upcoming five-track effort is said to further expand on the lyrical themes explored on The Spaceape's "Haitian-inspired" Xorcism EP, which saw its release in 2012. "The emotional, spiritua,l and psychological effects of living with illness and the 'unknown' are dissected wryly, but often with unforgiving brutality in this new batch of songs," states the EP's accompanying press release.
Serving as our first taste of The Killing Season is the sharp "The Devil Is a Liar," the accompanying video for which can be watched below. Kode9 & The Spaceape's new effort will see its official release on October 28 via Hyperdub.
