SUPER HUMAN POWERS – West Evil Rhymes (MP3)
This is just about the most brutalist pop extant. The beat hunches and thrusts forward, the squeals (like the Bomb Squad sampling the sound of tyres on ice) lurch around, the emceeing hits you, aggressive and threatening, but its ideas, setting and phraseology are unique, utterly unexpected and brilliantly incongrous.

Something of me has to admire the audacity of SHP’s concept, imagining the world as it was in 1320, a time of easy, casual human attacks and destruction, pushed into California. It’s exactly the mutation of Geography and Time that puts it several light years away from just about everything surrounding it. And extra points for the use of the word “skedaddle”.
