Georgia Anne Muldrow - Seeds (SomeOthaShip Connect)
Georgia Anne Muldrow’s Seeds is an organic stew of jazz, soul and hip hop. Opening with a golden-era backbeat that could score a Blaxploitation flick, and followed by the syncopated chatter of Wind, Muldrow injects a cosmic energy to tracks with her signature free-form flow. Aiding in the sonic odyssey are Stones Throw regulars Madlib and Dudley Perkins (aka Declaime MC, also Muldrow’s BF), who turns up for a few verses on The Few. Smooth-as-butter coos and Madlib’s salvo of misshaped beats assemble like a smoke curl of divine soul on Kali Yuga. Muldrow crafts music as if trying to return the world to order from chaos through positive sound vibrations. The effect is pure catharsis, proving that she might actually be on some kind of celestial frequency. Dear Jazz Fest promoters: book this lady!
