Moor Mother Analog Fluids of Sonic Black Holes Vinyl LP
As a being of light and ritual in a forever darkening world, Moor Mother brings us Analog Fluids of Sonic Black Holes, the culmination of all of her earthly experiences merged with all of her cosmic ones. A black hole is ‘black' because nothing can escape it, not even light.
A sonic black hole is fluid moving so fast that it traps sound - a perfect metaphor for the feeling of struggle against an unjust system. Analog fluids are the workers within the darkness of these black holes -- individuals who strive to make things work in the face of cosmic pressures.
On Analog Fluids, haunting slave narratives are presented as dystopian allegory and negro spirituals are flipped, remixed, and recaptured, only to be digitized into a symbiotic bio-morph program for the post-thumb drive age.
It's a record rich with the noise and chaos that affirm Moor Mother's punk roots, yet it is also anchored in earthiness via the constant injection of Black ritual, poetry, and drums programmed to vibrate through the listener's mitochondria.
The record is also a testament to Moor Mother's much expanded community - with collaborators that include Philly rap icon Reef the Lost Cause as well as philosopher and scion, Saul Williams. Production assists are delivered via Justin Broadrick (Zonal, Godflesh), King Britt, Mental Jewelry, Giant Swan, and JayVe Montgomery.
Shimmering in sinister sentience, Analog Fluids of Sonic Black Holes, is the perfect synthesis of Moor Mother's unique artistic approach and the Black revolution at large. Myth, Black mothers, vodun, quantum futurism, and post-colonial street narratives all get their moments to shine. In 2019, only a conjurer like Moor Mother can bring all those pieces together as a cohesive, powerful whole. The records accompaniment is a book of poetry featuring more of Ayewa's writings titled Analog Fluids.
