Sammy Warm Hands - Figures of Speech 2xCD

Regular price $14.99
Real music for real music fans! A six-panel, double-disc package from Atomic Disc, with original drawings by Betsy Streeter. Features SFR's B. Dolan on the track "Buckshot"! 

Figures of Speech (Crushkill Recordings) is a jarring improvement upon an already unparalleled body of work. 20 years into his career—spanning punk, rap, and folk projects—Sammy Warm Hands continues to refine his craft.

Figures is an epic, 24-track magnum opus, featuring the best rhymers in the underground. From the punchline-packed opener Hands Down (featuring Carnage The Executioner and Supastition), to his sequel to the fan-favorite Redefine The Flow (with Casual of Hieroglyphics), the friendly competition is evident between artists.

The lead single I Don't Care sums it up best: "Keep placing myself adjacent to greatest names on your playlist, facing off or collaborating I'm as bad as your favorites." And on top of razor sharp bars, Sammy Warm Hands produced the bulk of the beats himself.

The album veers political on Wildfire (a six-minute takedown of Trump-era racism), and gets personal on Other Desert Cities (an ode to his 13 year-old cousin, who committed suicide), but Figures of Speech excels in its simplicity. The gloves are off, and Sammy Warm Hands is bringing the golden era back, one dusty breakbeat at a time.
