Hotly-tipped Seattle I-don’t-even-know-what-ers Shabazz Palaces join their labelmates Blitzen Trapper in dropping a new track on Sub Pop’s Record Store Day compilation “Please to Enjoy” – the compellingly bewildering “Lost Foundling.”

It’s hard to tell whether the song’s eerie in a catchy way or catchy in an eerie way – once Shabazz Palaces sidle into the beat through some creepy, dizzy haze that sounds the way a David Lynch film looks, you won’t be able to keep from grooving a little (or a lot). It’s cold, futuristic, and definitely like no hip-hop you’ve ever heard – “Lost Foundling” might be catchier and weirder than anything out there. You should clear your schedule as you’ll probably want to listen a thousand times.
