Thanks for the enthusiasm man, I appreciate it. Definitely check out Boris' new one. If you happen to dig any of the hip-hop releases, that's awesome, but don't feel weird if you don't dig it. Since you're into jazz, I'd highly recommend checking out BADBADNOTGOOD, they're a jazz/improv trio that does interpretations of a lot of hip-hop tunes.

I actually liked Präparat more than all of Boris' 2011 output. I think Boris also put out a hardcore punk album this year, but I haven't checked it out. They're such a nutty band

I'm surprised Gambino isn't bigger than he is. Dude is clever as hell
Yeah I didn't listen to too many hip-hop releases either. I didn't even check out MCHG, and I definitely didn't check out the new Lil Wayne. I liked Yeezus a lot but after the initial hype I've noticed too many flaws with the album for it to warrant a write-up. Tracks like On Sight, Black Skinhead, New Slaves, and Bound 2 are still awesome though.
