Spirit of the Beehive: Entertainment, Death [Saddle Creek]

Spirit of the Beehive’s Entertainment, Death is their fourth LP and their first for Saddle Creek. It’s also the first record that the band recorded and produced themselves. “Spirit of the Beehive’s surreal lyrics reflect the kind of malaise that’s superabundant in the writing of Kmart realists: visceral, hallucinatory vignettes that evoke an entire landscape of feeling in very few words,” Pitchfork’s Sophie Kemp writes.

Damon Locks Black Monument Ensemble: NOW [International Anthem]

NOW is the second album from interdisciplinary artist Damon Locks and his Chicago-based Black Monument Ensemble, a lineup that here includes clarinetist Angel Bat Dawid and multi-instrumentalist Ben LaMar Gay. Like its 2019 predecessor, Where Future Unfolds, NOW addresses Black liberation as explored through samples from archival multimedia recordings and improvisation-guided jazz channels. Locks said in a statement, “It was about expressing possibility. It was about asking the question, ‘Since the future has unfolded and taken a new and dangerous shape… what happens NOW?’”
