It’s been just shy of a year since Idle Warship – the eclectic collaboration of Philly-born songwriter Res and New York rap icon Talib Kweli – dropped their full-length debut, Habits of the Heart. This fall, the duo appears with a new track called “Get Your Way (Sex as a Weapon),” a bumpin’ push-pull gender war vignette from the soundtrack of Quentin Tarantino’s The Man With The Iron Fist. Listen to it below and catch Res in concert at World Cafe Live on November 15; tickets and information on the show can be found here.
