Headphone Party is a new supergroup of sorts that pairs emcee AED, from next-level hiphop crazies Tony D. and the Flippers, with Portland electronic music producers DJ Tan't, Wilding, and Quiet Countries. The self-titled debut is impressive, particularly the way AED manages to deftly maneuver over an apocalyptic sonic jungle of backing tracks that would trip up lesser emcees. The thematic playfulness of AED's persona in Tony D. and the Flippers is still evident on Headphone Party, but it has been transmuted into a voice that's left the party upstairs and is now chilling in the basement, which syncs well with the multi-layered futuristic production. Tonight's early-evening listening party also sees the premiere of their new music video. RYAN FEIGH
