The Bullitts - 'They Die By Dawn & Other Short Stories'

Only the Roots-y beats of ‘Murder Death Kill’ and rave-skank of ‘Supercool’ give it some much-needed edge.

The Bullitts - 'They Die By Dawn & Other Short Stories'

Album Info

  • Release Date: July 29, 2013
  • Label: Kilburn Lane Music
6 / 10 Songwriter, producer and filmmaker Jeymes Samuel has taken his time getting this album out. It’s a sort-of soundtrack to the Londoner’s film of the same name – a black Western – and tracks stealthily started to surface two years ago. In keeping with its dramatic qualities, Hollywood stars Lucy Liu and Rosario Dawson pop up on the record, delivering monologues and breathy vocals over the mariachi-tinged hip-hop of the title track and the wispy electro of ‘Everything Is Broken’. It is, though, all a bit prim and polite. Only the Roots-y beats of ‘Murder Death Kill’ and rave-skank of ‘Supercool’ give it some much-needed edge.
