The Comet is Coming - Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery makes KOSU '10 favorite albums of 2019'

Jon Mooneyham, host of Everything All At Once Forever, shares his 10 favorite albums of 2019. Among them is The Comet is Coming - Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery. Shabaka Hutchings' apocalyptic cosmic jazz trio fuses the sonic Afrofuturist scenarios of Sun Ra and John Coltrane's late-period space explorations with the serene spiritual jazz of Alice Coltrane, synthesizing something new in that crucible. Emphasizing mile-wide grooves and dubby distortions, TCIC set the controls for the heart of dystopia - and having Kate Tempest along for the ride on one track is a big big bonus. PS: They also released another short LP late this year, Afterlife - a more uplifting flipside to the album.
