Since they emerged from clouds of mystery with two extraordinary EPs, Afrofuturists Shabazz Palaces have done their own damn thing, like enshrouding their Sub Pop debut in a velvet cover (take that, Bee Gees!). This year, Ishmael Butler and Tendai Maraire upped the ante with twin concept albums Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star and Quazarz vs. the Jealous Machines—the latter with its own comic book. In their most Sun Ra–like move yet, they spin the tale of a cosmic traveler seeking the real among the fake. Clear some space out so you can space out and support a good cause.
