quakers Check Out: Quakers   Fitta Happier

Last week, we had you questioning reality when it was announced that Portishead’s multi-talented Geoff Barrow will soon release a hip-hop record under the moniker Quakers. Well, pick that gray matter off the walls, because things just got real. A track from Quakers’ forthcoming self-titled debut has now found its way online (via Pitchfork). “Fitta Happier”, just one of the 41 cuts appearing on the record, features Guilty Simpson and M.E.D. as guests. The song does indeed sample Radiohead, but instead of the Ok Computer track “Fitter Happier”, Quakers use a marching band rendition of the Kid A cut “The National Anthem”. Go figure. Take a listen below.

Quakers – featuring Barrow under the nom de hip-hop Fuzzface, Portishead engineer Stuart Matthews aka 7-Stu-7, and Australian producer Katalyst, plus a score of guests – drops March 27th on Stones Throw Records. See the mega-sized tracklist below.
