Halloween is almost upon us, but before then we’ll be treated to the eagerly-awaited new album No Poison, No Paradise from Detroit rapper/producer Black Milk.

Early single ‘Perfected on Puritan Ave‘ was a heady collision of dusty jazz and Blaxploitation strings, but new cut ‘Dismal’ goes deep into the basement, conjuring up and eerie sound that’s not unlike a theoretical jam session with John Carpenter and Madlib. Far more low-key than its predecessor, ‘Dismal’ is no less rewarding, giving more ammunition to the claim that the full-length could be one of the finest rap albums this year.
