Uncle Tony's Coloring Book
Blockhead is the go-to man for anyone in the know on the indie hip hop scene. With his tough instrumentals, he has helped propel MC talents such as Aesop Rock, Cage, Slug, and Murs. Wanting to stretch out his creativity, he approached Ninja Tune with a killer demo for what was to become his debut album, Music By Cavelight, which contained the head-nodding hit of 2004, "Insomniac Olympics." Since then, he has racked up a second Ninja Tune album, Downtown Science, and slew of production credits--most notably on the upcoming Aesop Rock album, None Shall Pass, for Def Jux (due out late August 2007). To coincide with that release and the subsequent tour (on which he is opening all 45 dates), Blockhead has decided to self-release Uncle Tony's Coloring Book, an upbeat collection of fun instrumentals with the trademark Blockhead production style, tough beats, and catchy grooves that infect his earlier releases. So grab your crayons, spread them out on the floor and color along to the sounds of Uncle Tony's Coloring Book.
