So, my old friend and former Party Fun action Committee partner , Jeremy Gibson, has been doing a character known as Sir Jarlsberg for a while now. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s hard to explain. He’s a rapper/minstrel/entertainer from the days of yore. He raps about things like going to the market, the beauty of rivers and various dance steps. His first album , “Hark thou” was pretty much the “Low end Theory” of Medieval hip hop. His new album “Come Hither”, drops in a few weeks and he just leaked a song off it. This song…wow. I can honestly say not rap posse cut has ever featured such a wide variety of talent. Aside from his rapping chums (Dj Forlorn Maiden, Mingus, Sir Richard, and The Steed this song also features the likes of Lateef the Tru Speaker (Lateef), me (as the gnome), Aesop rock, Kimya Dawson , Baby Dayliner and Jeremy’s father Jon Gibson (who is a highly regarded wind instrument player who’s played with Philip glass and others for years). That’s a pretty fucking crazy line up.
Also, I did the beat and it’s silly as fuck. So, check it out…
I’d also say that, if you live in the NYC area, come see Jarlsberg’s live show cause it’s absolutely insane. I’m serious. It’s impossible to not have fun. It’s at Union pool in BK on October 29th.
