Late in 2011, Res and Talib Kweli released Habits of the Heart, the album that’s come out of their collaboration as the group Idle Warship.  This is the official video for one of their songs.

Should you pick up the album? Absolutely. We’re working on a review, but let me just say this: It’s one of the reasons that, in terms of music releases, 2011 ended so strong.
