More Than Posthuman – Rise of the Mojosexual Cotillion

  • More Than Posthuman - Rise of the Mojosexual Cotillion

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.

“the highlights are well worth listing: Akiba Solomon’s compelling black feminist oratory on “Enjoy Being Visible 2.0;” Matana Roberts’ duet with bassist Jared Nickerson on “Naomi’s Lullaby;” Iyer’s spirited pianistics on “Other Arrangements;” virtuosic rapping by Beans on “Sleep Is the Cousin of Def;” erotic prose from Carl Hancock Rux on “The Final Daze;” and hilarious overheard banter between Rux and Stefanie Kelly on the concluding “Goodyear Rubber.” The female vocalists are the ones who hold the thing together. They include Lisala on “Kungfucious” and “Be4Real,” Somi on “Enjoy Being Visible” and Imani Uzuri on the scathing “Get a Life.”
