Editors’ Notes

Seattle's Sadistik dropped his first album, The Balancing Act, in 2008, followed by the conceptual rock opera–inspired The Art of Dying two years later. Stylistically similar to acts like Eyedea, Sage Francis, Buck65, and Sole, he makes music for adventurous listeners unconcerned with funky beats or thug-life posturing; he's more interested in atmospheric production supporting ultra-emotional, heart-on-my-sleeve poetry. To be sure, Flowers for My Father won't spark a riot on the dance floor anytime soon. But for frustrated, "nobody understands me!"–minded teenagers or other moody listeners, this could be a godsend. Fellow melodramatic art rapper Cage appears on the dreamy single "Russian Roulette," while Deacon the Villain (of CunninLynguists) joins the fray on "Kill the King." Other highlights include "Song for the End of the World" and "A Long Winter."

Customer Reviews

Craftsmanship of this sort should never go unnoticed.

I've been sitting here for 5 minutes trying to figure out the appropriate wording to give this album justice. First of all, it's an amazing follow-up to "The Balancing Act," which was an astonishing feat in itself, but Cody makes it all seem so effortless. I know a lot of people have been waiting close to 5 years for this release and Sadistik did not disappoint. From a true fan and fellow artist.. Thank You.

Just buy it

Sadistik's newest release is the epitome of what progressive hip hop should be working towards. It's layered with complex rhyme patterns which enunciate the vulnerability in each of us. It's honest, it's real. The producers have created soundscapes, not just beats. They're ambient and accent his vocals in an unusual and interesting way. This is coming from somebody who almost never actually buys music and certainly doesn't write reviews. But Sadistik deserves it. This needs to be heard. Tell your friends.

Sadistik does it again!

Another great album from a true hip-hop artist!

Ceschi and David Ramos signed the rapper to their Fake Four label, where a follow-up, Flowers for My Father, was released in 2013. Sadistik quickly returned with another Fake Four album,...
