Artist: The Comet is Coming

Album: Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery 

Genre: Jazz/Nu-Jazz/Electronic/Psychedelic Rock

Label: Impulse! Records 

Rating: 7.5/10

Listening to London based trio “The Comet is Coming” is like having an LSD infused spiritual journey that is both meditative and exhausting. The attention to instrumental detail whether it be the spacey “Electronic” inspired keyboards, the crisp drums, or the sharp skittering saxophone which takes front and center, one thing is for sure, something in their music will resonate with you and pummel you with both tumult and melodic beauty. Self-described as “apocalyptic space funk,” the band fully introduced us to their world on their 2016 debut Channel the Spirits, now the band have returned with their follow-up Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery. This album focuses even further on the themes of apocalypse and chaos completely through improvisational instrumentation. It’s darker in tone but no less melodic and immensely jam-filled. However, not much has changed from their previous work. This album is more of the same, but as of right now that’s okay, because the music still captivates and immerses you into their beautifully chaotic world, and to be able to do that with instrumentation alone and only one track that has spoken word vocals is no easy feat. Upon hearing them, it’s inevitable to yearn for a live experience of the band, and they have impressively captured what it must be like to see them live on record. This album is a reminder that “Jazz” infused improvisation is still alive and well, with the genre exploring new territories, and in the wake of this new-found interest in “Jazz,” this album couldn’t have arrived at a better time.

E9260AEC-EE7B-440D-B19D-E715BEDF8607

Australian Psychedelic/Prog outfit “King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard” took a well deserved break from releasing new music last year, because following a year where a band releases five damn albums that same year, one would assume said band would have to take some time off to recharge their batteries and, you know, sleep. It’s looking like the band have hit another spark of creativity though, because it has just been announced that the band will release a new album titled Fishing for Fishies on April 26th via “Flightless Records.” The album will feature the band’s previously released single “Cyboogie.” Pre-orders begin  Wednesday, March 13th.
