Dom Flemons

Knox County Stomp
Black Cowboys 2018 via Smithsonian Folkways
a note about this track

Dom Flemons (of Carolina Chocolate Drops) presents Black Cowboys which pays tribute to the music, culture, and the complex history of the golden era of the Wild West. In this single volume of music, the first of its kind, Flemons explores and re-analyzes this important part of our American identity. The songs and poems featured on the album take the listener on an illuminating journey from the trails to the rails of the Old West. This century-old story follows the footsteps of the thousands of African American pioneers who helped build the United States of America.

Daniel Blumberg

Minus 2018 via Mute
a note about this track

Daniel Blumberg releases Minus on May 4, the first release under his own name and his debut for Mute Records. An astonishing work, the record weds an improvisational, free-music ethos to the rawest emotional songwriting, rooted deep in the personal turmoil Blumberg experienced whilst making the record. The album was recorded live with legendary producer Peter Walsh (Scott Walker’s collaborator since Climate Of Hunter) in just five days during a remote residential stay in Wales, amidst a debilitating breakup with his partner of seven years along with Blumberg's ongoing struggle with mental illness which resulted in his hospitalization just a week before recording.

Sudan Archives

Nont For Sale
Single 2018 via Stones Throw
a note about this track

The 23-year-old producer/vocalist Sudan Archives (aka Brittney Parks) mixes Northeast African folk violin with electronic music, creating a complex web of sounds that includes percussive plucks, swooping orchestral strings, and looped beats. The L.A.-based musician’s airy, willowy voice weaves through it all, infusing it with a trance-like feeling. Her new song, “Nont For Sale,” off her forthcoming sophomore EP Sink, is comparatively minimal, a confident, no-frills dismissal of anyone who tries to bring her down.

Fight The Power

a note about this track

The band’s new album (out May 25th) is a musical manifesto inspired by Public Enemy’s music and revolutionary spirit.
