Das Racist Australian Tour 2012 – Big Day Out Sideshows

Written by Brayden Darke on November 21, 2011

Brooklyn’s finest weed edge/hare krishna hard core/art rap/freak folk music trio Das Racist have announced Australian Tour dates, while out here on the back of their appearance on the Big Day Out 2012 line up in January.

After their recent 30+ date US tour to “impregnate America with pop-art rap stylings/next-level street literature” and launch new album Relax with friends Danny Brown and Despot… they cruise the cobblestones of Europe for the coming month before flying to Australia.

Das Racist follow the “top-shelf wiseassery and sneaky political incisiveness” of last year’s mixtapes Sit Down, Man and Shut up, Dude and raise the roof of your mouths with Relax lead track Michael Jackson and its whacked out video (below). The album was produced with a mixed bag of collaborators including Diplo, El-P, Yeasayer’s Anand Wilder and Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij.

Tickets on sale 28th November.

Watch: Das Racist – Michael Jackson
