Irreversible Entanglements - Who Sent You?
Irreversible Entanglements
Who Sent You?
LP | 2020 | UK | Original (International Anthem)
22,99 €*
Release:2020 / UK – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Stay on it! This is the future! This is the spectral dreaming, the reshaped soundwaves of post-Katrina, post-Osage Avenue, post-Obamacare that we borrow from to do this work, so stay on it.

Who Sent You? they said from their liquid cryo-chamber, from a low-light induction field cobbled together with lithium rods, with melted down Romare Bearden and Howardena Pindell paintings, stitched with chaos fibers and placed in the center of the carrion husk of a burnt out shanty town. They took time to scrape ashen samples of what was, their souls the residue thick and caked on, that still climbs those new high-rise condominiums like moss—the only evidence that they were once there, that they were baked into the fabric of this planet—they were there fixing elevators and tossing wrenches into quantum fields until they were stopped! frisked! and turned into weird, 100-foot martyr murals on the backside, the north side, of supermarket walls—Who Sent You? is how the matrix modulation works.

Dig it: Who Sent You? is the punk-rocking of jazz and the mystification of the avant-garde, a sci-fi sound from that out-soul-fire jazz quintet Irreversible Entanglements. Who Sent You? they asked and tried to lock us in their distress chambers, and yet here it is: an album that functions as a heat-sealed care package for the modern Afrofuturist’s pre-flight machinations. This record weaves kinetic soul fusion, dreamy yet harrowing spectral poetry, and intricate force-field-tight rhythms into wild, warmth-giving tapestries that comfort and conceal, confront and coerce all at once, with the dark matter of the deep, black all-consuming universe as its thread.

Where the band’s self-titled debut was all explosive noisy anthems and glorious cosmic bluster, Who Sent You? is a focused and patient ritual. Irreversible Entanglements take their time in between these grooves, stalking the war-torn streets of the Deep South and post-Columbian apocalypses—taking their time to add our DNA to the centrifuge, to dream up an alchemical amalgamation that sounds truly euphoric, drenched in the epic star-flung fallout of a nova only they can conjure. More than the sum of its parts—Luke Stewart’s war-like basslines, Keir Neuringer’s haunting saxophone, Aquiles Navarro’s cyberpunk brass, the unwieldy storm of Tcheser Holmes’ drums, and the oracular phyletic incantations of Camae Ayewa—Who Sent You? is an entire holistic jam of “infinite possibilities coming back around,” a sprawling meditation for afro-cosmonauts, a reminder of the forms and traumas of the past, and the shape and vision of Afrotopian sounds to come.
Jaimie Branch - Fly Or Die II: Bird Dogs Of Paradise
Jaimie Branch
Fly Or Die II: Bird Dogs Of Paradise
LP | 2019 | US | Original (International Anthem)
21,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
"FLY or DIE II: bird dogs of paradise" is the much-anticipated follow-up to composer, trumpeter, and (now) singer jaimie branch's debut Fly or Die, which was dubbed one of the "Best Albums of 2017" by The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, NPR Music, WIRE, Stereogum, Aquarium Drunkard, and more.
Written (mostly) while on her first European tour with "Fly or Die" in November 2018; and recorded (mostly) in studio at Total Refreshment Centre and live at Café OTO in London UK at the end of that tour, bird dogs of paradise is the result of a never-satisfied branch pushing her distinct style of progressive composition to new heights - while also stepping forward as a vocalist for the first time.
"So much beauty lies in the abstract of instrumental music," says Branch in the album's liner notes, "but being this ain't a particularly beautiful time, I've chosen a more literal path. The voice is good for that".

Damon Locks & Black Monument Ensemble
Where Future Unfolds
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (International Anthem)
23,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Where Future Unfolds is a new work spirited by Chicago-based sound & visual artist Damon Locks. Starting as a solo sound collage piece (where Locks pulled samples from Civil Rights era speeches and recordings to create an improvisational pallet for performance on his drum machine), over 4 years the project has blossomed into his 15-piece Black Monument Ensemble - featuring musicians (including Angel Bat Dawid on clarinets and Dana Hall on drums), singers (alumni of the Chicago Children's Choir), and dancers (members of Chicago youth dance company Move Me Soul). Where Future Unfolds is a live capture of the ensemble's epic debut at the Garfield Park Botanical Conservatory on the West Side of Chicago. Recalling the spirits of Phil Cohran's Artistic Heritage Ensemble, Eddie Gale's Black Rhythm Happening, Archie Shepp's Attica Blues, and Public Enemy's It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, the album presents an inspired, innovative & immediate intersection of gospel, jazz, activism & 808 breaks. à

The result is this epic, 2xLP set that represents another breakthrough in Makaya's career as a recording artist, as well as a definitive new work of the exciting global groundswell of next-generation, Black musicians re-vivifying and re-articulating "jazz" in 2018.

Irreversible Entanglements
LP | 2017 | US | Original (International Anthem)
22,99 €*
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.

Junius Paul - Ism
Junius Paul
Ism
2LP | 2019 | US | Original (International Anthem)
26,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Ism opens audaciously with the spiritual mic-check "You Are Free To Choose," a track that features bassist Junius Paul alongside Vincent Davis (drums), Justin Dillard (piano), and Corey Wilkes (horns). This is by no accident. In many ways, "You Are Free To Choose" captures the spirit of Junius Paul's artistic roots. Corey, Justin, and Vincent were among the multigenerational cadre of Chicago musicians present when Junius chose to follow his own path of creative discovery at the storied Velvet Lounge on the South Side of the city in 2002. Though he began learning his craft playing in church, Junius's creative voice really developed during jam sessions at clubs like The Velvet alongside members of the AACM. It was iron sharpening iron, the most natural form of knowledge transfer. He explained The Velvet's vibe in 2018: "It's like in Africa.... If you had this society of diviners or medicine people, or you know, sages... The Velvet stuff is not secret; but there are certain aspects of it... if you weren't there, you weren't there." The Velvet Lounge closed in 2010. But, of course, the spirit of the Velvet Lounge is not dead. "Tune No. 6," recorded live at the Co-Prosperity Sphere in Chicago, is a sweet interlude here to remind us that jazz is alive, bristling with what's yet to come.

Ben Lamar Gay
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.

The Oracle
LP | 2019 | US | Original (International Anthem)
22,99 €*
Release:2019 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Composer, clarinetist, singer & spiritual jazz soothsayer Angel Bat Dawid descended on Chicago's jazz & improvised music scene just a few years ago. In very short time, the potency, prowess, spirit & charisma of her cosmic musical proselytizing has taken her from relatively unknown improviser to borderline ubiquitous performer in Chicago's avant-garde. On any given night you can find Angel adding aura to ensembles led by Ben LaMar Gay, or Damon Locks, or Jaimie Branch, or Matthew Lux, or even, on a Summer night in 2018, onstage doing a woodwind duo with Roscoe Mitchell. For her recorded debut on International Anthem, The Oracle, we've chosen to release a batch of tracks that Angel created entirely alone - performing, overdubbing & mixing all instruments & voices by her self - recorded using only her cell phone in various locations, from London UK to Cape Town RSA, but primarily from her residence in the attic of the historic Radcliffe Hunter mansion in Bronzeville, Southside, Chicago.
Dos Santos - Logos
Dos Santos
Logos
LP | 2018 | US | Original (International Anthem)
22,99 €*
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).

Over the course of 3 days in London, drummer/producer Makaya McCraven connected with first time collaborators (Theon Cross, Nubya Garcia, Joe Armon-Jones, Soweto Kinch, Ashley Henry, Daniel Casimir and Kamaal Williams) and did 2 improvised performances as part of a 2-night showcase called CHICAGOxLONDON at legendary UK Jazz hub Total Refreshment Centre (TRC). The following Sunday afternoon five producers (LeFtO, Ben LaMar Gay, Quiet Dawn, Earl Jeffers & Don Leisure of the Darkhouse Family) were invited to TRC to participate in an event called Fresh Roasted: Live Beat-Making & Battle, where they did live remixes of the recordings from Makaya & cos CHICAGOxLONDON performances. Remixes by Emma-Jean Thackray and Lexus Blondin were added to the pool, at which point Makaya took all the remixes and the raw live recordings from TRC back to his home studio in Chicago, chopped everything up and re-composed the music into two continuous side suites for this CHICAGO x LONDON mixtape.
