new music: ‘horn of the clock-bike’ – saul williams’ pulsating new track

September 17, 2015

Check out the brand new track from Saul Williams – ‘Horn of the Clock-Bike’. Stereogum – who premiered the pulsating track (taken from his upcoming album, ‘MartyrLoserKing’) – say that Williams submitted the following excerpt from his new book, ‘US (a.)‘, to go along with the cryptic song: “‘Look how they treat us.’ …whispers the innocent sister. Her life barely missed her. Then Patience approached and he kissed her. Love’s like a transistor. Feelings have features. Innocent creatures distort what love teaches. Trade scriptures for preachers, communion for leeches. Earth’s mountainous speakers bombard and boom beat us. On guard to defeat us. You hate us. You need us. You are us. You reek us. The Martyrs and Seekers, sow questions and reap us. More grime than grim reapers. Designer diseases resolved to repeat us. You kill us. You eat us. You grow corn to feed us. You crowd us. You beat us. You crave us. You need us. You slaughter and bleed us. You tax us, harass us, pray, and then eat us. You slay us and feed us, from POTUS to penis, the aborted fetus, the corpses, the meat, us. Make sausage of Jesus. The law says to bleed us. We embody greed, lust. The wrong shepherds lead us.” Listen below, and catch Saul Williams next month at our first inaugural festival in Atlanta (Oct 3-4):
