Hail Mary Mallon “Garfield” Video

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Considering how darkness in rap has become so closely associated with such recent shock acts as the polarizing Odd Future, it’s refreshing to be introduced to a group such as Hail Mary Mallon which doesn’t make a desperate grab for attention while driving a sincere sense of nervous energy. Not unlike last month’s “Smock,” “Garfield” rides over Big Wiz’s mellow production as Rob Sonic and Aesop Rock weave their rhymes around one other, echoing the bleakness of the video itself. “Garfield” is taken from the group’s debut album Are You Gonna Eat That?, which is out now digitally but won’t drop in stores until June 7.
