-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This sophomore studio effort on STRANGE FAMOUS RECORDS / SPEECH DEVELOPMENT features a supporting cast of talent from a wide range of musical backgrounds, including AESOP ROCK, BUCK 65, ALIAS, CECIL OTTER (Doomtree), KATHLEEN STUBELEK (Circle Takes the Square), DS3K, BUDDY PEACE, and the late DAVID LAMB (Brown Bird).

It would be easy for an album to go astray amidst such varying styles, but Dolan stays in firm command as the expert conductor, driving the album's layered and visionary sound. "KILL THE WOLF" sets out with a goal of demolishing the boundaries of what was previously thought possible in a B. Dolan record; bringing the best techniques from his catalogue into a new era of production value by fusing live guitars, analog synths, violins and upright bass with formidable vocals and intricate lyrics.

Five years after shaking the foundations of underground rap with his "Fallen House, Sunken CIty" LP, B. Dolan emerges from the earth, battle-tested, clear-eyed, and sharper than ever.

First single is nuts! The energy reminds me of the previous collabs with the british boys.

Soooo... Is Who killed Russell Jones an acapella or is there a beat for it?

A tip of the hat to Smile? From what i hear, the production of Kill the Wolf reminds me of By the Throat. Not exactly, but if i were to make a comparison to give someone a taste.

A tip of the hat to Eyedea, yes. Smile no. Here's an unnecessarily long answer:

When Francis first heard this hook he actually said "Didn't Eyedea have a hook like that years ago?" and reminded me of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDWJ13K15Bc

I listened, decided it was a different enough hook and not derived from hearing Eyedea's song (my hook doesn't play on the 'all good/alright' thing... and also wasn't consciously referencing that song. When writing I was thinking about the sort of rock & roll / blues trope of saying 'I FEEL ALRIGHT!' i.e. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hA6FwGTIPI4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoAO0851FwA) So the intent of the chorus is more, "I FEEL LIKE SHIT BUT LET'S START THE SHOW BABY!")

But anyway, Francis made me aware of that Eyedea song midway through the writing of this song, which is probably why he was on my mind and did end up being referenced in the song.

Whew.

The By The Throat comparison will probably be made, and that album is the shit and I wouldn't be mad about that. Though I think there's a lot of different kinds of songs on KTW and you shouldn't judge what it sounds like by this track exactly... Now I know I'm talking entirely too much.

Glad you guys like it!

I caught an advance listen of this years ago so I'm not sure how much has been changed if anything but man, this album is gonna fuck heads up. The song with Aes and Buck is *tips cap to Neuro* absolutely bonkers.


I haven't anticipated an album more than this one in a long ass time. Congrats on reaching the finish line, B!
