Boomkat Product Review:
Camae Ayewa (Moor Mother) leads the Irreversible Entanglements quintet on a cool, swaggering 4th album of punk soul-inspired free jazz jams.
In Irreversible Entanglements’ adaptations of ‘70s jazz fusion and spiritual modes, the band tacitly acknowledge that on some levels many things haven’t changed over the past half century. They continue to mine a vitality from tried and trusted combinations of styles that still bleed with expression, moving as one between the sinuous, dubbed out roll of ‘Free Love’ to an brilliantly up-stepping album highlight ‘Protect Your Life’, and thru to the more pent, dread-heavy closure imparted by ‘Degree of Freedom’, with Camae Aiwa’s vocals reserved to her most pointed lyrics and deliberate delivery.
There’s a bustling wild one for the most dextrous jazz dancers in the crazed ‘Soundness’, and we’re well snagged on the intensely low-key groove and spiralling synths of ‘root⇔branch’ and the simmering anguish of ‘Sunshine’ channelling Sonny & Linda Sharrock.
