The legendary Lonnie Holley returns with Mith. It's an album filled with righteous fire aimed at the chaos and injustice of American life. His impassioned spoken word delivery gives topics like Standing Rock and Black Lives Matter the weight they deserve. As does the beefy instrumentation: wild drums, blasting horns, and always his own distinct piano improvisations. From the music to its lyrics, this is vital.
Staff note from Daoud :
Wow, I've not been this excited for a new album for ages. The lead single from MITH is 'I Woke Up in a Fucked-Up America', and contained in those five and a half minutes is all the confusion and anger that title is getting at. Lonnie Holley's delivery steadily collapses into a furious growl all the while bolstered by gloriously manic drumming and shots fired through a trombone. Proper hair standing on end stuff.
