New Selfhelp album out now. Featuring Fresh Kils, Thesis Sahib, Mattr, Vangel, Factor, Ill Seer and more!
“Although this album is being released in 2010, Broken Shadows can be considered a precursor to the 2009 Selfhelp album Old Friends. This collection of b-sides includes a variety of songs that were cut from Old Friends as well as various other recordings from Selfhelp’s past.
Some songs included on this project date as far back as 8 years. This collection of songs were never released for various reasons. Some due to quality, some just didn’t really fit anywhere else, while some were kept hidden for personal reasons. While investigating old hard drives we realized that there were around 50 random b-sides that had never been released before. We eventually narrowed that down to this 20 song collection entitled Broken Shadows. In the end we really felt that some of these songs needed to be released so that we could move on musically & continue creating future projects without all of this clutter sitting on our shoulders. Think of this as a release of our deteriorating past…a glimpse into our broken shadows.
Some of the concepts on this album are really dated & don’t necessarily reflect Selfhelp’s current state of mind. Regardless, we feel that these songs should be shared & so here it is…a piece of our history brought forth into your present. “
