The simplicity of this album is its richness, as well as amazing and spatial sound, sometimes based in the rhythm and sometimes in the intriguing musical space.
Favorite track: Black Flight.
Blacks' Myths create pulsing, hypnotic rhythmic structures that churn unpredictably, all while exploring the cracks and ambience in between. The DC duo is comprised of Luke Stewart on bass and Warren G. "Trae" Crudup III on drums. Their debut, the twelfth release from Atlantic Rhythms, is a snapshot of two collaborators at the height of their powers, expanding the idea of a rhythm section into something both ancient and futuristic.
Urgency, groove, tradition, anger, it's all there in this wonderful bass sound. At times, riffs sound like a sequenced modular with shifting patterns, at times like a Charlie Haden intro to the Liberation Music Orchestra's next militant and melancholy piece. olivkon
