The Godfather of Nerdcore Rap is at it again, bringing his parsecs of knowledge to your cochlea with his newest album, Final Boss.
Featuring guest spots from Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket), Jonathan Coulton and Wil Wheaton, Final Boss is unabashedly geek-tastic. MC Frontalot holds forth on topics ranging from cryptozoology (“Scare Goat”) to improper use of punctuation (“Tongue-Clucking Grammarian”) to a new dance based on a grand-dame (“Wallflowers”). The album takes its title from Front’s track of the same name, featured in the video game “On the Rainslick Precipice of Darkness” from the makers of the popular webcomic, Penny Arcade.
MC Frontalot “Wallflowers”:
Front’s chameleon-like adaptability is on full display with the release of Final Boss. Tongue-twisting lyrics lie over swathes of eclectic samples and beats from a wide variety of genres. A true master of ceremonies, Frontalot ushers us through his multi-faceted offerings with wit and aplomb.
