Themselves: Free Album/Tour


Anticon Records is proud to present the newest addition to the Themselves catalog, a 39-minute-long free album, of sorts, theFREEhoudini. Themselves are Doseone (Adam Drucker) and Jel (Jeffrey Logan), both members of JamBase faves Subtle (see our 2008 feature for lowdown). Featuring guest appearances from Buck 65, Aesop Rock, Busdriver, Lionesque, Slug of Atmosphere, D-Styles, DJ Baku, Pedestrian, Sole and Serengeti, as well as Yoni Wolf and Odd Nosdam as cLOUDDEAD (not to mention the whole entire mixtape being mixed down by Nosdam as well), theFREEhoudini serves as Doseone and Jel's return - a posse record that never was and a contribution to the mixtape medium circuit so tied to hip hop's history.

This download will be hosted for free for 90 days. For more information regarding the limited and numbered deluxe CD version (which contains an additional 16 minutes of audio and guest appearances from Passage, Alias, and Fog's DJ Andrew), click here. It is now up for pre-order. theFREEhoudini, deluxe version will also find it's way to digital retailers soon for a similar bargain/EP price. An extremely limited run of numbered deluxe CD versions of theFREEhoudini will be made available via Anticon's online store. These will feature an additional 16 minutes of music, separated tracks, and guest appearances from Passage and Alias accompanied by DJ Andrew (Fog's Andrew Broder).

To provide another incentive for signing up and downloading, Themselves will be giving away a one-of-a-kind piece of art created by Doseone, which serves as the original drawing from an inside panel of the limited deluxe CD version of theFREEhoudini's artwork - view it here.

2009 will be a very busy year for the duo. First up for Themselves is a tour, including stops at SXSW last week and Coachella in April. In August 2009, Themselves will drop their third official full-length album, CrownsDown. Dose says, "CrownsDown is our statue - to rap as it reered us - and the arch and arrow, of what it is to be us, in a decade of music made and the temperature of these two thousands." It's also worth pointing out that theFREEhoudini mixtape and CrownsDown will be the 19th and 20th releases of Doseone's career, respectively.

Havn't listened to much Anticon in a while but I might have to check this out. I really like Doseone, Aesop, and Sole, but Pedestrian and Buck 65 are annoying, especially live.
