The Uncluded, Hamell on Trial

MATTHEW SINGER
7:30 pm, Monday July 29 | $18 advance, $20 day of show.
Wonder Ballroom
128 NE Russell St.
 

[TWEE-HOP] El-P and Killer Mike aren't the only hip-hop tandem in town this week, but this one is…well, certainly not intuitive. Although it makes a bit more sense when you think about it: Both rapper Aesop Rock, with his pretzel-tongued lyrical abstractions, and singer-songwriter Kimya Dawson, best known as one half of the Moldy Peaches and for her gratingly childlike contributions to the Juno soundtrack, are cult artists loved and reviled in equal measure. As the Uncluded, the duo seems destined to polarize even their own fan bases. On debut album Hokey Fright, Aesop spits his usual complex game over Dawson's preschool-simple acoustic twee-pop jangle and beats built from kitchen utensils. It's unclear who this is supposed to appeal to exactly, but then I've never understood who the artists appeal to on their own anyway.
