DJ Shadow‘s latest album, The Less You Know, The Better, is a sample-riffic sonic wonderland that comes off as a nuanced bout of delicate yet hard-hitting tracks that find the esteemed turntable wizard reaching new grounds of creativity.
Due out on Oct. 4, The Less You Know, The Better sports an impressive collection of guest vocalists, including Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon, Posdnuos of De La Soul, Tom Vek and Talib Kweli. Have a listen to the full album below, courtesy of NPR, and keep a good bit of insulation around your heart for Sad and Lonely. It’s a crusher.
