California rapper MC Lars is set to release his fourth full-length studio album, The Zombie Dinosaur LP. Full of his trademark literary references, nerdy lyrics and witty rhymes, it features guest appearances by Watsky, Kool Keith, and Less than Jake’s Roger Lima. To support this will be doing headline shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
Zombie Dinosaur tackles such topics as post feminism in a nod to hit TV show Game of Thrones (“Dragon Blood”); disappointing reunion bands with very few of their original members (“Sublime with Rome is Not the Same thing as Sublime”); and hipster parenting (“Hipster Mom”).
MC Lars explains the meaning behind the album title –
“I feel like a dinosaur because I’ve been doing this so long, but I also feel like I’ve gotten better and better each year,” he says of his latest record. “You could also say that I’m a zombie in the sense that my rhymes and beats are more infectious with every release, and if you are there when you hear my spit, you’ll forever be converted and changed – much like the result of being bitten by a zombie. #metaphors”
MC Lars kicked off his self-penned “post-punk laptop rap” career in the late ’90s and rose to acclaim with the release of his debut recording, The Laptop EP, in 2004. Rooting out source and sample material from punk and emo bands, he quickly became revered as an important music voice. Lars has had an Australian Top 30 song with “Download this Song” and gave a shout out to Sydney in his song “Where ya Been Lars”.
