East Hampton Polo Boys Pays Homage To Lorde Jones Scorcese With Album, ‘Winter Catalogue’

Prior to his untimely passing last year, Lorde Jones Scorcese was hard at work crafting Winter Catalogue with producer Panels as East Hampton Polo boys. On 14th January, the anniversary of his passing, Insubordinate Records released the Winter Catalogue album featuring guest appearances from Eddie Kaine, Lord Juco, Zilla Rocca, Rahiem Supreme, Doof and Alaska.

Following in the footsteps of 2020’s Summer Catalogue, the album features decadent sample based textures provided by Panels which Scorcese lyrically dances around while delivering his patented brand of deliberate, layered wordplay full of witty references to sports, fashion, dope-dealing and pro wrestling.

East Hampton Polo Boys were born from a stylish, yet hapless tag team from Monday Night Raw, and represent the sometimes fruitless pursuit of excellence. It is Saks 5th Avenue meets 80s era Brooklyn Lo-Lifes.

The album comes complete with Scorcese’s vision of a full line of fly embroidered merch: hoodies, crewnecks, beanies, scarves, joggers and more. It’s also available in limited quantities on CD and 4 different cassette designs with art by SquatDeadFace and Cassettes Hotel.

Winter Catalogue is now available at insubordinaterecords.com and also available to stream on all streaming platforms. Check it out below…
