FOREIGN LEGION: ‘Travel Lite’ single out now, ‘Night Moves’ LP due 17th August 2010

Foreign Legion’s Night Moves LP (cover art below links) has been coming out and then failed to more times than an indecisive closet gay man. The evidence on the band’s own Hungerstrike Records website, would suggest that the latest due date for Prozack Turner and Marc Stretch’s much-delayed album is 17th August this year. The underrated Bay Area hip-hop duo’s long-awaited third LP is preceded by the seemingly troublesome digital release of promo single Travel Lite. And when I say troublesome, it looks like it’s been kicking around the web for a few weeks now even though publicity for it has been practically zero, the release date varies according from site to site, the artwork has changed (see below LP cover), the video has been pulled from YouTube (at the time of writing) and (depending on the site you visit) it sometimes comes with another track, Ultimate, as well as instrumentals of both. What is going on in the FL camp? Enquiring Minds want to know! Nevertheless – the understated Travel Lite rocks an ATCQ style beat courtesy of Intro Beats (i.e. the man behind the FL’s Secret Knock EP banger, Piano Banger) and lyrically explores the joys of the tour while the altogether trippier Ultimate offers woozy summer horns, Asheru & Blue Black style – …LISTEN to both HERE. Apparently, “the full length album is dropping in late summer and has appearances by Rhymesayers alumni Night Clubber Lang of the Boom Bap Project, Oh No, and Raashan Ahmad of Crown City Rockers!” according to the Hungerstrike Records site, which also notes that the album, “is already being hailed a classic by both Prozack Turner’s and Marc Stretch’s mothers.”
