Listen: Obnox’s brash new song “Sit Yo Ass Down”

on August 08, 2014, 5:00pm

CoSigned Cleveland-based musician Lamont “Bim” Thomas, aka Obnox, is known for fusing hip-hop and ’90s punk/garage rock. We’ve heard him uncannily meld the two genres on last year’s Corrupt Free Enterprise and his most recent album, March’s Louder Space. This week, Obnox continues to show off his unique sonic palette with his latest single, “Sit Yo Ass Down”.

Shrouded in a thick fog of distortion, the track is relentlessly loud and brash, its ear-piercing static nearly screaming self-assurance. Something tells me that if Obnox asks you to take a seat, whether in a polite manner or not, you’d be a total dummy not to comply. Listen in below.

“Sit Yo Ass Down” is off Obnox’s latest 12-inch, The Juke That Sat By the Door, out now via Chunklet.

In support of the release, Obnox will tour the U.S. over the next few months.
