Now Hear This: Mamaleek | Come & See

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

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “On Come & See, Mamaleek seek to weaponize the tropes of blues, jazz and black metal through an understanding of their respective formal structures. Known for flouting genre conventions, the band’s newest album marks yet another degree of separation from their metal roots.

Here Mamaleek draws inspiration from post-war public housing — specifically Chicago’s notorious Cabrini Green housing project — seeking to analyze the emotional impact of the spaces we occupy, the surreal forces behind the appearance of physical reality, and the residues they leave behind. Come and See is the band’s third full-length LP, and their first release written and recorded with a full band. The album was recorded live with little to no overdubs.”
