Now Hear This: Calabashed | Behold A Black Wave

I'm getting caught up on the good albums that have come out lately. Like this one.

219

THE PRESS RELEASE: “The debut EP from the newly established, multi-faceted jazz outfit Calabashed, comprised of firebrand poet & MC Joshua Idehen (LV / Benin City / Hugh), sultry saxophonist Alabaster DePlume, dreamlike harpist Maria Osuchowska, drumming donny Donna Thompson, bossman guitarist James Howard and analogue tape and FX wizard Raimund Wong, produced by Comet Is Coming / Soccer 96 production mastermind Danalogue.

Five tracks of contemporary sonic mastery of no known origin firmly rooted in jazz, hip-hop, soul and pure spirit unlike anything else either currently on the radio or our roster. It has been a journey and a half getting this one off the ground and the councilmen of the great Purple City have honestly never been more excited to welcome another truly unique group of creatives inside The City limits.”
