L’Orange & Mr. Lif Announce New Album With Adult Swim “The Life & Death of Scenery”
Today we’re happy to announce that two of Mello Music Group’s finest, producer L’Orange and MC Mr. Lif, have teamed up and partnered with Adult Swim to bring us a new project. The album, “The Life & Death of Scenery,” will be released through Adult Swim for free on October 7th, with an extended album coming a week later on Mello Music Group on CD, LP & Digital with an alternate album cover.
The album takes place after the world has already ended. The last remaining people have banded together to create the last society. Culture has been banned as music and art have been sacrificed to prioritize survival. Joining the duo on the project are guests like DJ QBert, Gonjasufi, Akrobatik, Insight and Chester Watson. Wyatt Cenac (Daily Show, Bojack Horseman) also guests as the narrator throughout the album.
“A poem with an Orwellian tone. So ironic to find art & inspiration deep within oppression. “The Life & Death of Scenery” paints a portrait where art is outlawed and hums a melody where harmony is an offense punishable by death.”Â – Mr. Lif
Debuting on Adult Swim, two of the most conceptual and unusual alternative artists in underground hiphop have joined forces to tell an absurdist story of culture, art and oppression, set in a lighthearted dystopian future. As adventurous as the concept sounds, the album is musically grounded in hiphop fundamentals and off the wall lyricism. Joining the duo are artists like DJ QBert, Gonjasufi and Akrobatik. Wyatt Cenac (Daily Show, Bojack Horseman) lends his voice as the narrator of our story.
