    Our Pathetic Age is split into two sections: The opening 11 songs are purely instrumental, including DJ Shadow’s first fully composed orchestral piece. The second half of the record features a slew of guest vocalists.

    DJ Shadow said in a press release:

    More than anything, I try to get a sense of the mood of society as a whole. The subtle signals that humans send each other, the way people behave, their frustrations and ebbs and flows. In my part of the world, people are scared. There’s rampant homelessness, and a real fear of falling into generational poverty. People are addicted to, and addled by distraction; they’re angry and confused, and disaffected by their own governmental institutions. There’s songs that are inspired by this energy and seek to harness it, to make sense of it. In some cases, there’s attempts to salve the wound; in others, the songs merely observe but don’t offer solutions. Despite the title, it’s a hopeful, vibrant album...there is always light in darkness. I want it to reflect the times we live in, a signpost in the ground to mark the era...Our Pathetic Age. —DJ Shadow

    A guest list you wish your favourite rappers would use. I've not listened to much DJ Shadow before but I'm in. Mass Appeal isn't a hyped label from what I've seen but Nas has quietly put together a network of real talented artists.
