Hume‘s Phat Daughter String Quartet, subject of this One Track Mind, is finally out and available for purchase. The 12″ record includes a suite of four compositions on the a-side backed by dub versions of those same pieces on the flip. I had thought the b-side would be kind of disposable—that it would sound like somebody playing a Final Fantasy video game through a delay pedal. Not the case though! Hume’s Britton Powell deftly splices the quartet into some heavy reggae riddims, sounds kind of like Arvo Part paying a visit to Black Ark.
Pick it up here.
