Tonight celebrates the latest full-length release from Grayskul, the Seattle duo made up of Onry Ozzborn and JFK from the Oldominion crew. Zenith racks up an impressive 18 tracks, with engineering by Portland's own Zebulon Dak. It kicks off with an extended shout-out from Wu-Tang's Raekwon, a somewhat unexpected cosign, considering the stylistic variance between the two camps. Longtime fans can rest easy, though; despite the intro, this isn't a departure into cocaine criminology raps. The subterranean diatribes for which Grayskul is known remain intact. Dark bars about scarecrows, school shootings, and social media are joined by guest appearances from recent tourmate Aesop Rock and sultry sounds from local singer Reva DeVito. Dystopia rules everything around me, dreams get it dunny, moody hoodie trill y'all. RYAN FEIGH
