Cypress Hill Share First Taste of 'Elephants on Acid' With Psychedelic Single Band Of Gypsies

Friday, 03 August 2018 Written by Helen Payne

Cypress Hill have shared the first taste of their new record.

The hip-hop duo are set to release their ninth studio album, ‘Elephants On Acid’, through BMG on September 28.

Band of Gypsies represents their first new material in eight years, and was recorded in Egypt. It combines their classic sound with psych-rock flourishes and a team of oud, sitar and flute instrumentalists.

‘Elephants on Acid’ is the first Cypress Hill album to be produced by DJ Muggs since 2004’s ‘Til Death Do Us Part’, and he’s firmly back in the driving seat for the new record. Fellow member Sen Dog noted:

“Anything can happen when Muggs, B-Real, and myself get together to record. We were kids when we first got together. We’ve grown up as men now, but the chemistry is still the same. When we first came out in the nineties, we sounded like nobody else; we sounded like ourselves. This is another continuation.”

Meanwhile B-Real added:

“The album is both a trip back to the roots and an escape into a completely new world.”

Cypress Hill tour the UK in December supporting the album, including their biggest shows for over a decade.

Noname - Room 25 (Album Review)
Mon 17 Sep 2018
You get the impression Noname still doesn't realise how immensely likeable she is – both as an artist and a human. There was much about the Chicago rapper's 2016 mixtape 'Telefone' that was impressive in a conventional sense, whether it was her smooth, jazz-inflected flows, impeccable taste in neo-soul production or ability to create crystal-clear imagery. But what listeners connected with most was her magnetic personality. More specifically, they bought into her compassionate worldview and propensity to derive hope from the bleakest of topics or circumstances.

Brockhampton - Iridescence (Album Review)
Wed 26 Sep 2018
With their inclusive ethos, motivational lyricism and taste for avant-garde pop production, Brockhampton have proved over the past year and half that they're the hip hop collective OFWGKTA should have been. That comparison might seem trite from an artistic perspective, but it fits because of the impact both groups have had on a predominantly young audience. But where OFWGKTA had a misanthropic streak, Brockhampton's messaging is more wholesome and empowering.
