Themselves, part of the Anticon crew, play underground hip hop with the confounding lyrical poetry of Doseone's other group, Clouddead, but without the same approach to ambient sound textures. Vocalist Doseone and producer Jel teamed up originally as Them and released a self-titled full-length in 2000. Reincarnated as Themselves, in September of 2002 the California duo put out The No Music, an ambitious, but essentially flat record set to undermine the conventions of hip hop. The This About the City Too 12" followed later that year.
