♫♪  Signor Benedick the Moor - ”.//End”

Self-described krautrap artist Signor Benedick the Moor records all his music in his bedroom. At least, that’s what the Bandcamp page for his debut album El Negro would have us believe. Big deal… there are plenty of bedroom rappers out there — it’s practically a cottage industry, right?

Ah, but the plot thickens. With the release of the “Signor Benedick the Moor LIVE! thru his grandma’s eyes: The Tragic Tale of Bisen Fransisco” video three weeks ago, we learned that Signor Benedick’s bedroom is actually in his parents’ house. Now, I’ll concede that some parents are more supportive, liberal, or artistic than others, but it takes some balls to record a track like “.//End” in their house.

Recording it there twice, though? That’s just downright disrespectful. Here’s to hoping Benedick waited for an opportune time to lay these vocals, because if he didn’t, then based on the veins that start popping out of his neck around the 4-minute mark, it’s safe to assume that this kid’s parents are putting up with more noise than any parents should have to endure.

”.//End” is off Signor Benedick the Moor’s ambitious El Negro from last year. He released his first physical release, the sbthemoor cassette, this year on Deathbomb Arc.
