Summer is officially a day gone, but its spirit remains strong on in this seasonal ode. From her recent Nite-Glo release, Stellar OM Source’s “Live” becomes a night-in-the-life document of ecstatic, unbound youth.
You may remember director Johann Rashid from the psychotropic diaries of Sunshine Soup, FRKWYS Vol. 12’s companion film. For “Live,” Rashid sheds Soup’s vibrating color for monochrome while maintaining an acute awareness to the human form and response.
Stellar OM Source’s Nite-Glo is available now in vinyl and digital forms.
RVNG Intl. presents We Are Not The First, an Epic conducted and deconstructed by Chicago artist Hieroglyphic Being and the J.I.T.U. Ahn-Sahm-Bul.
We Are Not The First combines the musical forces of Marshall Allen (Sun Ra’s Arkestra bandleader), Daniel Carter, Greg Fox, Shelley Hirsch, Shahzad Ismaily, Elliott Levin, Jamal Moss, Rafael Sanchez, and Ben Vida in deep dialogue with each other and humans’ hidden sonic history.
Peer into the collective mind with “Civilization That Is Dying,” featuring Shelley Hirsch’s exorcised vocals and Ben Vida interlacing acid lines between Daniel Carter and Shahzad Ismaily’s respective sax and guitar play. We Are Not The First will be available to all beings on October 30.
