Boards Of Canada To Release New Album On June 11

If everything you wanted to say can be contained in an e-mail’s subject line, you’ll usually put “EOM”, end of message, to indicate that the subject line of the e-mail said everything you wanted to.

The same could be said for the headline of this post, that’s basically all the information I received about the new Boards of Canada album, it’s titled Tomorrow’s Harvest and it’s out on June 11 via Warp Records.

Stream Or Download Fat Tony’s ‘I Shine’ For Free

Houston-based rapper Fat Tony takes on a darker lyrical bent on the second single from his forthcoming album Smart Ass Black Boy, out on Young One on June 11.

He had this to say about the album in a statement;

“Me and producer Tom Cruz put our all into this one. We set out to make an album, not just a bunch of aimless rapping and it shows. I’ve been making music since I was a lil teen, learning a lot and becoming a better artist every step of the way. Smart Ass Black Boy is the bridge from my adolescence to who I am now as a man. I touch on gentrification, race relations, romance, growing up a first generation Nigerian-American, and more all while having a hell of a good time. Step into the mind of a young rap god on the rise straight out of 3rd Ward, Houston, Texas.”

He also announced a series of tour dates, check ’em out below;

05-10 New York, NY – Downtown Festival *
06-10 Brooklyn, NY – Knitting Factory (Smart Ass Black Boy Release)
06-29 New York, NY – 4 Knots Festival
09-05 – 09-07 – Raleigh, NC – Hopscotch Festival
