Irreversible Entanglements
LP | 2017 | US | Original (International Anthem)
20,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Irreversible Entanglements are a liberation-oriented free jazz collective formed in early 2015 by saxophonist Keir Neuringer, poet Camae Ayewa (a.k.a. Moor Mother) and bassist Luke Stewart, who came together to perform at a Musicians Against Police Brutality event organized after the slaying of Akai Gurley by the NYPD. Months later the group added trumpeter Aquiles Navarro and drummer Tcheser Holmes (a duo who also performed at the MAPB event) for a single day of recording at Seizure’s Palace in Brooklyn, and the full quintet’s first time playing together was captured for this debut. In four relentless bouts of inspired fire music the instrumentalists explore and elaborate compositional ideas drawn from their deep individual studies of free jazz improvisation, but the tone of each piece is driven decisively by Ayewa’s searing poetic narrations of Black trauma, survival and power. The message is the undeniable essence of the music. Though free jazz with voice is an uncommon approach in the modern day landscape of the genre, the spirit and subject the band channels and explores represent a return to a central tenant of the sound as it was founded – to be a vehicle for Black liberation. As creative and adventurous as any recording of contemporary avant-garde jazz but offering listeners no abstractions to hide behind, this is music that both honors and defies tradition, speaking to the present while insisting on the future. Irreversible Entanglements is the first collaborative split release by International Anthem & Don Giovanni Records, a partnership aimed to amplify this potent music and pertinent message to the widest possible audience.
Dos Santos - Logos
Dos Santos
Logos
LP | 2018 | US | Original (International Anthem)
23,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Dos Santos is a quintet just 5 years on the Chicago scene but already well established as one of the city's most potent, impactful performers. Their psychedelic cumbia-heavy early EPs & singles have also garnered them wide attention, but mixed responses they're sometimes commended, other times disregarded for their ability to rekindle & re-present vintage sounds. However Logos, their International Anthem debut, is a bold & vulnerable leap into a more future-minded & universal sound, something that transcends the nationalism many of us are desperately trying to depart from, but don't have the vocabulary to fully escape. Incubated/created over several improvisational writing and experimental recording sessions at International Anthem's Southside HQ Co-Prosperity Sphere, Logos captures Dos Santos laying their voices bare, at once aware of cultural context, informed by aesthetic precursors, and yet fully irreverent to expectations or how any of this might be appropriately employed. Highlights include the balladic melodrama of caminante, the noir-cumbia refrains of rdva, the afro-psych gallup of the title track logos (which features the Antibalas horn section), the Tortoise on TNT-resounding guitar phrases of coda, and the Tame Impala-like Juno synth layers of manos ajenas (touch you every day).
Ben Lamar Gay - Downtown Castles Can Never Block The Sun

Downtown Castles Can Never Block The Sun
LP | 2018 | US | Original (International Anthem)
22,99 €*
Release:2018 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Downtown Castles Can Never Block The Sun is as much a greatest hits as it is a debut album for Ben LaMar Gay. It's his first solo album, and its a collection of music compiled from 7 albums he made over the last 7 years but never released. If you're a follower of Chicago music, Downtown Castles is likely not the first you've heard from him. One of the most prolific collaborators in the city's creative music community, he makes active contributions to Nicole Mitchell's EarthSeed, Joshua Abrams's Natural Information Society, Bitchin Bajas & many more. And he's well present in the International Anthem catalogue. Beyond being the brains behind Bottle Tree the future funk suite we released in April of 2017 that was named #1 Best Album of the Year by London's EZH Magazine and on NPR's Sound Opinions (c/o producer Ayana Contreras) Ben LaMar Gay plays on both of our biggest 2017 releases, Makaya McCraven's Highly Rare and Jaimie Branch's Fly or Die. Ben LaMar Gay is already almost omnipresent in the current zeitgeist of progressive jazz sounds sprouting from Chicago, but the release of Downtown Castles will be his first moment squarely in the center of the spotlight. Ben's musical vision covers a whole amazing sonic universe. He is, hands down, one of my favorite musicians on the planet today. - Jeff Parker Recommended if you like... Don Cherry, Tom Ze, Big Boi, Thundercat, Abner Jay, Steve Reich, Archie Shepp, Raymond Scott, Daedelus. LP comes packaged in the deluxe International Anthem style - heavyweight tip-on jacket, IARC OBI strip, dome patterned inner-sleeve, glossy photo insert with detailed liner notes, and DMM-cut classic black vinyl.

Fly Or Die
LP | 2017 | US | Original (International Anthem)

Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
A mainstay of the Chicago jazz scene and an active recent addition to the New York scene, Jaimie Branch is an avant-garde trumpeter known for her “ghostly sounds," says The New York Times, and for "sucker punching" crowds straight from the jump off, says Time Out. Her classical training and “unique voice capable of transforming every ensemble of which she is a part” (Jazz Right Now) has contributed to a wide range of projects not only in jazz but also punk, noise, indie rock, electronic and hip-hop. Branch’s work as a composer and a producer, as well as a sideman for the likes of William Parker, Matana Roberts, TV on the Radio and Spoon, is all on display in her debut record Fly or Die – a dynamic 35-minute ride that dares listeners to open their minds to music that knows no genre, no gender, no limits.
