Ceschi & Factor Chandelier share “Middle Earth” video ft. Sammus with The Talkhouse

Ceschi’s music lives in some liminal space between left-field hip hop, folk punk and indie rock. It’s hard to explain, so on planes he generally tells people that he sounds “something like like Ed Sheeran,” and they nod. He has worked with Saskatchewan, Canadian producer Factor Chandelier for over a decade as they formed the backbone of their Fake Four Inc. record label. Their 2015 record, “Broken Bone Ballads” built a cult following within the indie rap and DIY punk communities. 2019’s ‘Sad, Fat Luck’ is part eulogy to many lost friends, part breakup album, part US-born-Latino analysis of Trump’s America, and part ode to aging, featuring guest vocals from Sammus & Astronautalis.
