More Than Posthuman — Rise of the Mojosexual Cotillion

  • More Than Posthuman - Rise of the Mojosexual Cotillion
  • 2006 : TruGROID

Our ver­sion of what R and B might sound like today if live bands hadn’t been derailed by sam­pling tech­nol­o­gy in the Black com­mu­ni­ty some­where around 1977.
We’ve got all the freeform rag­ing horns and gui­tars of our pre­vi­ous albums only com­po­si­tion­al­ly com­pressed into these groove­vi­cious post-every­thang song forms.

Personnel

“Burnt Sugar, Greg Tate’s “23rd-century R&B” collective, has attracted to its ranks such pathbreaking jazz musicians as Vijay Iyer, Matana Roberts and Avram Fefer. The band’s sprawling, anarchic sensibility is best witnessed live, but this studio effort does them justice. The tracks veer from disco to death metal to noise and jazzy abstraction. If you would, imagine P-Funk forming a book club with Bad Brains, Curtis Mayfield and the Mothers of Invention to discuss the work of Frantz Fanon and Aimé Césaire.”
