The Comet Is Coming - Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery Vinyl LP
The Comet Is Coming Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery Vinyl LP
The Comet Is Coming - "an improvisational, intergalactic mash-up" (The Guardian) who were shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize in 2016 - is comprised of King Shabaka (Shabaka Hutchings) on saxophone, Danalogue (Dan Leavers) on keys/synth, and Betamax (Max Hallett) on drums. With their new album, Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery, the trio envisage a 21st Century take on spiritual jazz that is part Alice Coltrane, part Bladerunner.
The trio are nothing short of alchemists, concocting a primordial stew of taut beats, sub-bass, and unhinged sax breaks. They paint pictures of astral planes and neon seas, with driving beats and celestial melodies. Listen to the pulsing "Blood Of The Past," on which guest vocalist Kate Tempest delivers a state-of-the-universe address that somehow simultaneously summons the spirits of William Blake, Ian Dury, Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking, all with wide-eyed awestruck wonder. Or "Summon The Fire," perhaps their most accessible, riotous, and air-punching moment to date.
