from $.99 dreams

If Sun Ra conducted a group of Ethiopians playing afro-cuban Xenakis pieces that were produced by DJ Premier, you would have a solid idea of what the new .99 DREAMS album sounds like.  A powerful amalgamation of disparate sources; hip hop, funk, jazz, punk, 20th century classical, free jazz--this new slab tickles your earholes, soothes your synapses, and greases your feet.  Check it out for free and see if you agree.
