Sapient

MATTHEW SINGER
7 pm., Friday March 01 | $9 advance, $12 day of show.
Branx
320 SE 2nd Ave.
 

[HIP-HOP OR NOT?] Is Marcus Williams a rapper with indie-rock aspirations or an indie rocker with a hip-hop jones? Maybe he’s something else altogether. As a producer and MC, Sape’s always pushed boundaries. On his latest album, Slump, he eliminates them entirely. As a member of the sprawling Sandpeople crew, he’s primarily known for his eclectic production style, stitching together cutup, Flying Lotus-esque beat-scapes, neck-breaking G-funk and synth-driven indie-electro. Slump, however, is something else, featuring strummed acoustic guitars and more singing than rapping, while still beating with a hip-hop pulse. It’s very much of-the-moment, as the rap and indie worlds are colliding and blending at a greater rate than ever, except the convergence of influences is embodied in a single, talented songsmith.
