Jakub Knera Free-jazz? Post-hardcore? Noise? Black Myths consistently show just how much they have to say using such sparse means. Their striking power is huge, the album has lingered in my mind for a long time. Contrary to sophisticated Llovage, Black Myths are all about reflecting the emotions, revolt and anger of the African American community through music. Owing to its form, this is both a musical and a political statement. And it’s stirring to the core. Favorite track: Free Land.

about

Blacks' Myths is a duo from Washington, DC comprised of Luke Stewart on bass and Warren G. "Trae" Crudup III on drums. The group's latest, 'Blacks' Myths II' collects thirteen tracks from a marathon recording session in the summer of 2019.

Two of DC's most active and versatile musicians, Stewart and Crudup build symbiotic rhythmic pieces by locking into something both hypnotic and free. Their collaboration is redefining the rhythm section by dismantling its tropes and injecting unpredictability as well as a sense of vibrancy and freedom. The group's debut, Blacks' Myths (Atlantic Rhythms, 2018), established a space for ambience and eruption, building hypnotic rhythmic structures and exploratory soundscapes.

"On Black Myths, Stewart and Crudup craft evocative, Afro-futuristic grooves, frequently disrupted by eruptions of feedback dissonance or languid soundscapes." -- Down Beat Magazine
