Garbageface has always looked out for us, but where previously his help was more of an open offer, now he’s starting to dish out actual advice. “If you’re lost and you need help, just remember this ritual, a spiritual victual: make a circle of salt and bones.” Repeat as necessary. If you think this sounds like magic or even maybe religion, it definitely is—in a manner of speaking, at least.
Sonically, Apostasy is a confirmed miracle, Brooklyn producer Yung Gutted’s doomy bass and gothy bells and organs creating a perfect whirlwind for Garbageface’s double-tracked double-time rhymes and relentless mano sinistra flow.
Garbageface is still way existential, still asking the connection questions (“Will you help me to defeat this body that I’m trapped in, this skin that I’m wrapped in, this gin that I’m wrapped in?”), but now he’s fixated less on the barriers and more on the magic that happens when we do get it together.
Apostasy, and the rest of Garbageface’s music, is available for purchase on Bandcamp.
