With the first song of his 2014 masterpiece, ‘Dark Comedy’, Open Mike Eagle reintroduced himself by defining his style: “I’m bad at sarcasm so I work in absurdity.” On that album, Mike deconstructed our overstimulated and over-surveilled society with ease and caustic wit. But what do you do when the world warps and bends into a shape so absurd that it can no longer be exaggerated?

‘Brick Body Kids Still Daydream’ is a searingly political record for systolic political times. It chronicles the life cycle of the Robert Taylor Homes, a housing project on the South side of Chicago that was demolished completely ten years ago. Families that had lived under the same roof for three generations were forced to scatter, condemned by bureaucrats and faceless cranes and public indifference. Mike Eagle brings the Robert Taylor Homes back to life–literally, with arms and eyes and a head like the dome of a stadium–and fights until the last brick is made to crumble.

After debuting his first video for “95 Radios“,¬†featuring Has-Lo, Open Mike Eagle will be releasing his new album ‘Brick Body Kids Still Daydream’ on September 15th.

You can pre-order ‘Brick Body Kids Still Daydream’ via iTunes | Bandcamp | Spotify | Mello Music Group [CD | Vinyl]
