So you are probably wondering who is Hail Mary Mallon? Well the answer is Aesop Rock, Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz teaming up to bring you that back and forth flow with deadly cuts that has been missing from groups recently. The name, Hail Mary Mallon is in reference to:
Mary Mallon aka Typhoid Mary, the first person in US identified as a carrier of the pathogen associated with typhoid fever.
Their first single, Smock has a hypnotic beat with Aesop and Rock carrying the verses while DJ Big Wiz provides the cuts. Hail Mary Mallon gives the visual treatment to Smock with the group driving around San Francisco with special guest appearances from DJ Big Wiz, Kimya Dawson, and artist/illustrator Alex Pardee.
