Sounds like: A séance with John Coltrane, Hermann Hesse and Public Enemy
Album: State of the Art is Failure. Limited copies available now. Full release this fall.

Saints of Everyday Failures are the Sonic Youth of hip-hop, says MC D-scribe. They are living the dream that nobody remembers, says MC ePhryme. If those statements make no sense, you haven’t been listening.
“This album’s message is two-pronged,” says MC ePryme. “It’s a commentary on where the entertainment industry is, and that what is considered ‘making it’ is a trap. Not that I don’t want to be successful, but that the iconic nature of pop culture is empty. We want something different.
“It’s also a commentary on where we’re at artistically. This is the best we can do, and were total failure in a common sense. And we’re totally happy with it.”
The album features the Saint’s trademark socio-spiritual esoterica, with production by the mysterious MyLeftFoot, Smoke, Shin and Tha Goonie. A list of spicy underground artists also contributed to Failure, including Awol One, 2Mex, Onry Ozzborn and members of Chicago’s Typical Cats. Murky, mystical hymns mingle with a spate of energetic anthems.
With State of the Art complete, the Saints are channeling psychic and spiritual energy into half a dozen projects, including ready-to-record solos from D-Scribe and ePhryme.

See ‘em live tonight
Saints of Everyday Failures will play the Capital Lakefair festival July 20 with One Block Radius and a very special guest courtesy of Living Legends crew. Doors open at 9 p.m. at The Mark, 407 Columbia St. S.W., in Olympia.  Cover is $5 at the door. â€" Paul Schrag
