Destituent is Sole's 7th solo studio album. Sole is a co-founder of the legendary anticon label, and last year as Vice noted, Sole is 'a pioneer of underground avant-garde rap.' Destituent is an album about the innate human capacity to solve problems and build new forms of life without the need for government and coercion. Musically this entirely self produced album is a departure from most of his work, featuring heavy New Wave / No Wave influence, almost to the point of being poppy, but the subject matter ensures that it never could be. Walls of noise, upbeat drum breaks, swelling distorted synths, poetic streams of consciousness and polyrhythmic rhyming styles. Anarchy, the call of the wild and the power of music. His work has been featured in Spin, C-Span, Democracy Now, Vice, 2 DopeBoyz, The Intercept, Truthout, and countless other outlets. Sole proves that you can make thoughtful music that works in the headphones, on the dance floor, and on the barricades.
