Black Market Brass recently celebrated their tenth year as a band. Rather than round out the decade with more of the same, they’re headed into new territory with Hox – their third LP. It’s a new take on afrobeat fused with heavy, hypnotic, sci-fi sounds that reflect the band’s myriad of influences as record collectors.

Like their previous albums, the 9-piece band recorded Hox live to tape. “The sound and aesthetic of the analog recording process is important for this kind of music,” Pulice
explained. “We’re looking to capture lightning in a bottle.” With that, the album features several sections of heavily processed synthesizers, harsh glitches, fuzzed out guitars, and a burning percussion section that pays homage to the traditional drumming cultures of Nigeria and Ghana. The performances are dynamic and confident. The grooves are infectious and hypnotic. BMB has pushed further into musical experimentalism, but at the end of the day, they’re still making dance music.

Krautrock, free-jazz, doom metal – the inspirations for Hox stem from all kinds of musical backgrounds, but the sound is far from scattered. It’s a polished, innovative
record that’s sure to exceed expectations and keep the listener engaged from start to finish. Antifreeze green vinyl version.
