Moor Mother
Moor Mother
Moor Mother is the viscerally charged output of Philadelphia based interdisciplinary artist, Camae Ayewa.

'Moor Mother might be the most radical – even the most useful – Afrofuturist artist to emerge for years. Fetish Bones works not just as an atlas and an archive but as a mausoleum, housing the bones of those who have fallen along a bloody trail stretching all the way back to 1886' — WIRE

Camae Ayewa (Moor Mother) is a musician, poet, visual artist, and workshop facilitator, and has performed at numerous festivals, colleges, galleries, and museums around the world, sharing the stage with King Britt, Roscoe Mitchell, Claudia Rankine, Bell Hooks, and more. Camae is a vocalist in three collaborative performance groups: Irreversible Entanglements, Moor Jewelry and 700bliss.

'Fetish Bones is her masterclass on creating a sensory experience that interrogates your complicity, pushing you through a door that sends you hurtling through time' — PITCHFORK

In late 2016, she released her debut album Fetish Bones on Don Giovanni records to critical acclaim. Fetish Bones was named 3rd best album of the year by The Wire Magazine, number 1 by Jazz Right Now and appeared on numerous end of the year list from Pitchfork, Noisy, Rolling Stone, and Spin Magazine. She has since released 'The Motionless Present' commissioned by CTM X VINYL FACTORY 2017, as well as fronted the groups Irreversible Entanglements and Moor Jewelry and 700bliss. Thanks to her unstoppable energy, she has recently peformed at a host of vital festivals including Borealis, CTM, Le Guess Who?, Unsound, Flow, Rewire and Donau.

'Her music is deliberately raw and unfiltered, like human feelings' — FADER
Odonis Odonis
Odonis Odonis
Since their blown-out 2011 debut Hollandaze, Toronto trio Odonis Odonis has continued to push their sound further into the depths of post-apocalyptic experimentation. Following 2016's foreboding Post Plague, No Pop is the band's starker, more dance-floor-friendly fourth LP.

Executed with precision, every sonic component of No Pop commands attention. Stripping down instrumentation to a handful of synths and an electronic drum kit, the band worked quickly to write and record, bringing demos and improvised takes into the studio and completing the recording process over the course of three days. The result is a focused blend of hard-hitting industrial, techno, and noise - but each track on No Pop is never just one of those elements. Pulsing rhythms lay the ground for textural soundscapes masterfully woven together to create a palpable sense of doom that is thick and satisfying.

Taking its name from the anti-commercial No Pop movement, which infers that there "is no expiration date on music nor is it limited by geographic or regional boundaries," No Pop is raw with emotion that's elevated by deft production. Each hypnotizing meditation captures an uncomfortably honest cynicism with a brush of humor, emphasized by sparse vocals that taunt the current dystopia of technology, human emptiness and the mundane. No Pop is the soundtrack of a sinking ship, and we're all happily aboard to go down with it.

No Pop is being released by Felte October 20th, 2017.
