about

In honor of the long awaited fifth season of Samurai Jack, SEE MORE PERSPECTIVE and his brother Nye cooked up a video that puts SEE MORE in the Samurai Jack universe...where he seems to be right at home as the titular character of their forthcoming EP, ‘SEE MORE EYE JACK’. Exploring future wastelands and cityscapes full of “watch bots”, sci-fi updated “chupacabras”, and “chainsaw-handed, fire-eyed peace droids”, SEE MORE draws biting parallels between our world and the world of Samurai Jack, where the shape shifting master of darkness, Aku’s “evil is law”.

Coming off their last release SEXTAPE (Or My Response to Our Morbidly Underdeveloped Sex Education), this EP finds this producer/MC duo of Nye and SMP in top form, sharpening each other's talents with an array of sounds, styles, and storytelling. After creating a purple make-over of SEXTAPE, in honor of Prince, SEE MORE was honored with a Cedar Commission with cellist Eric Silva Brenneman. With that project, they blended elements of classical, hip hop, spoken word poetry, new mythologies and social allegories. It seems that some of those themes have followed SEE to this new project, where the action and sci-fi get turned up to epic, Samurai-Jack-like proportions.

Track Name: (...and the planet imagined the ballad of ) SEE MORE EYE JACK
He came up in the echo of the fire and the smog
rattling of cages in a brain under a shroud
Found space to learn in the hills, in the fog
But behind his father’s eye a silhouette like smaug
Their house was the hood of the Mexican descendants
Indigenous and friendless different than the rest just
A tribe in the wilderness robotic beyond fences
Suffered some attacks but mostly just not on the guest list
…little cyborg Mexica in the cypher
Diggin’ for messages in the speakaz to decipher
capacity for knowledge, so he’d listen to the experts
Shouting match with thunder storms and whisper with the zephyr
taught ‘em of the goddess how to call on and protect her
his hallowed mission was the sonics he’d invest (word)
as he generated light, and connected with other sources
a blanket of deceit was woven by other forces
a harness for the darkness was designed and implemented
shards of truth fragmented to reflect only demented
versions of the persons as to worsen the perspective
of who they really were in this absurd and blurred dimension
the sounds that were abound meant to uplift now did distract
and any focus that remained was now the subject of attacks
with enhancements he did manage to stay balanced and intact
and the planet imagined the ballad of see more eye jack
