Godforbid (frontman of the band That Handsome Devil and underground emcee veteran of the Alaskan Fishermen) is saying something. Prowling around the dark edges of the beat, lashing for your throat with existential dread, scathing social commentary, satiric self reflection, a boiling pot of dark rock riffs, psychedelic organs, and intense driving rhythms, possesses a voice like a rusty razor with flows like he was born into the production. The world is on fire, the culture is burning, and Godforbid is roasting marshmallows and having post-apocalyptic sing-alongs. Join him.
His latest solo LP How To Make Your Art Matter speaks to everything falling apart with the ground crumbling below. “It’s about action over art. About conquering the daily struggle, and the things you can’t control while not letting it turn you into a piece of sht” says Godforbid. The album features producers Quandary, Louis Mackey, Mister Jason and Jeremy Page and consists of political satire, antisocial camaraderie, militant swagger, call to action, and even some noir heart break. Then proceeds to close out with flexing punchline bravado and intricate flow patterns on Real Fake feat. A-F-R-O. This sht is dangerous so check it out now on your preferred digital streaming platform via Dead Silence Records.
