Listen to Fatima Al Qadiri’s Eerie July 4th Anthem from Adult Swim

Adult Swim’s Single Program is always a highlight of the summer season, offering up free music downloads every week from our favorite underground icons and up-and-coming musicians. The newest single comes from multidisciplinary artist and producer Fatima Al Qadiri, who recently released her debut album Asiatisch on Kode9’s Hyperdub imprint. Her contribution to the Adult Swim series is titled “Star-Spangled” and will be available for download starting July 4th.

Al Qadiri did not take the release date for granted when she produced the track, dissecting the mythos of the national anthem through stirring synths. “‘Star-Spangled’ is dedicated to American national nightmares. On one hand, dark dreams of suburban serial killers and mangled hitchhike heads. On the other, a false hope of national greatness cooked by covert agendas,” she says in a statement on Wired. “Star-Spangled” is not zealous dribble in the vein of Toby Keith. The track is the perfect alternative for those who want a shock of realism while they kick back a Bud this July 4th weekend.
