Second full album of this psyche-delicious and accessible 21st century Ethiodubjazz formation. As if John Zorn put on Fela Kuti’s shoes and imbibed Mulatu Astatke’s whirls.
On this album Black Flower digs deeper into the oriental sound and introduces heavy dub elements.
The title track ‘Artifacts’ has been appreciated by interesting lads such as LeFto, Gilles Peterson and The Gaslamp Killer and can be considered the killer-track on the album.
