New Lushlife + CSLSX LP Available for Streaming

The day is almost here. We heard about the collaboration between emcee/producer Lushlife and production trio CSLSX a few years ago during a session with Lush for our Choice/Cuts series. That feels like a lifetime ago. However, we are happy to finally get to share with you - Ritualize. Hopefully this record will bring Lushlife and CSLSX all the recognition that they so deserve. The LP also features rad contributions from Killer Mike, Ariel Pink, RJD2, Nightlands, Yikes The Zero, and many others. You need this album for your collection, and you will be able to find it tomorrow at Western Vinyl, or grab it next Saturday, February 27 at their record release show at JB's.
