As a member of Athens-based hip-hop supergroup Deaf Judges—and its short-lived successor, Mad Axes—Malcolm Walters provided an earthy, easygoing counterweight to his bandmates’ fiery approach. As Donny Knottsville, Walters has released a steady stream of material over the past few years, the latest example of which is July’s Celestial Seasons. Featuring beats by Studebaker Assassins and appearances from local musicians Sienna Chandler, Paul McHugh, Thom Strickland and others, the album is a reprobate’s coming-out party, Knottsville’s filthiest and finest effort yet.
