For those of you fortunate enough to catch Andrew Thiboldeaux and Chris Ward, the Philadelphia based duo better known as Pattern Is Movement, on their recent tour and appearance at SXSW, you may recognize this track. As well as being the title track for their upcoming album, out later this year, it was offered up on their tour E.P. “Light Of The World” is another wonderful example of this band’s eccentric hip hop style that is fused with a healthy dose of indie rock and folk, especially on the aforementioned track.
Try to imagine a collaboration of The Roots, of which PIM has been known to share the stage, mixing it up with the likes of The Postal Service. The same sort of energy and instrumental fundamentalism these legends have and use are of the same make up — always cool as ice and genre-bending are these manic musicians.
