After releasing my favorite album of 2012 and an entire album of 8-bit beats later that year, Constrobuz is hitting 2013 big with his newest release: a 46-minute, 17-track album gloriously titled The Great Struggle. If 2012’s Rain and Dust was an experiment in chopping jazz, then The Great Struggle delves further into the R&B side of things. But like Rain and Dust, this album also follows a certain theme. Judging by the cover art (which depicts what looks like a kind of riot in an ancient coliseum) and the smooth, somber flow of the album, that theme is grandiose. Something epic. About love, betrayal, and revenge. You know, the kind of stuff they film three-hour historical dramas with huge battle sequences about.
Check it out below, and buy it from Constrobuz himself over at his Bandcamp page.
