Weird, inventive, and probably ahead of its time.

I had the good fortune to see these guys in Manchester last night. It was one of the weirdest gigs I've been to, but also one of the best.
The music has varied angular rhythms layered over deep basslines, strange note sequences and voices cut in and out of the soundscape, seemingly at random. Sitting on top of that, the lyrics float between emphasised repetition and flowing eloquence. A couple of the tracks feature vocals from THEESatisfaction, which serves to change things up nicely without breaking out of Shabazz Palaces' style.
If you're a fan of new music then you should give this a try, because there isn't much, if anything, else like it.
