Sounds and looks so cool. Has something Caribbean that may or may not be Trinidad and also something of Keleketla, which is still my favorite album from last year.

Excellent song. I'm impressed at how relatively restrained it is. I saw a headline about this being released (on a Nate Chinen piece via an NPR affiliate) that nonsensically called it "fiery." Super excited to hear the rest of the album now

SoK were the group that got me into all this London stuff, and I'm unreasonably excited about this record...their last one remains one of my most-played from the past few years.
