Bad boy icon Tim "Sole" Holland has kept a low profile over the past few years. He lived in Spain, issued an album in 2005 (Live from Rome), and nurtured his Anticon emblem from a pioneer for underground hip-hop into an outpost for indie-pop mordancy.

On May 29 he’ll issue Poly.sci.187, which translates to Political Science 187: "Political Science: This Shit’ll Kill You."
A press release from Anticon describes it as "filled with such sonic explorations. The album is an accomplished work that testifies not only to the fine art of experimentation, but to the aural abilities of Tim Holland, instrumentalist?may he be loud even in silence."
