Spaghetti Blacc – D.F.E. Round 3: Hell’s Legal Fees (Self Released)
Get some new @SpaghettiBlacc
snakes of the sabotaging word will be punished!! you have been warned #blacklivesmatter
ONO – Red Summer (American Dreams Records)
It’s been “Red Summer” for over a hundred years. While the term “Red Summer” typically refers to the race-driven violence in the Summer of 1919 across the United States, its repercussions, its vocabulary can be felt or heard on every corner of every street. In Chicago, it has a special significance, as Chicago was one of two catalysts for that era’s violence, exploded by invisible racial borders along the South Side, a phenomenon that exists today, constantly considered by long-running gospel industrial band ONO.

Speaker Music – Black Nationalist Sonic Weaponry (Planet Mu)
A surprise release by Speaker Music in response to recent events. An 11 track album with PDF booklet designed by Make Techno Black Again, powered by HECHA / 做. All label profits from this release will be donated to beam.community and m4bl.org
Black Nationalist Sonic Weaponry is an album of street-level fire music exploring poet Tsitsi Ella JajiI’s concept of “stereomodernism,” or as she describes: “dubbing in stereo for solidarity.”

Father’s Children – Father’s Children: Who’s Gonna Save The World (Numero Group)
Father’s Children’s true freshman offering is a work genuinely concerned with its own time and place, bringing together comet-hailing funk, sunny group harmonies, fuzz-guitar solos, shimmering keys, bubbling percussion, spiritual prophecy, and dub experiments. Our deluxe LP edition includes the bonus 45 “Linda Movement” b/w “Intellect” and a folio full of promo photos that track the band’s evolution from D.C. doo-woppers to L.A disco denizens.
Thelonious Monk – Epistrophy (Palo Alto, CA, October 27th 1968)
Mid-century modern art springs to life to accompany Thelonious Monk’s “Epistrophy”, off of a previously unknown + unreleased 1968 live recording ‘Palo Alto’.
