When we last checked with Idle Warship, the duo--Talib Kweli and Res--were busy railing against Hillary Clinton who was nipping at Barack Obama's heels to become the Democratic nominee for president. It goes without saying that alot has changed since then. Barack is now POTUS. Hating Hillary is going to be Secretary of State. And Idle Warship has grown from a buy-one-get-one free deal to a trio with the addition of Canadian alternative/hip hop artist Graph Nobel. Graph is Res' partner in her other side project Fleetwood Black, so it makes sense that she would fall into the Idle Warship fold. That doesn't mean that was a good idea, however, because after hearing her on the group's new track "Black Snake Moan" and seeing the fresh-out-the-oven video, I'm a little underwhelmed. Kweli delivers an adequate verse but something doesn't gel with Res and Graph suggestively singing that they'll "make your black snake moan/so if you're 'bout it take me home." Really? For a group that started out so different and cutting edge, this song and video fall into the tired and increasingly typical, frenetic nightclub fare. Meh.
