A New Myth on Vinyl via Joyful Noise Series curated by Shabaka Hutchings

Debut Album A New Myth finally on vinyl 

“To have the basis of one’s cultural framework shaken to the core is an experience so wrenching that it forces the participant of this mental enterprise into a head space dominated by cascading waves of self reflection. I’ve tried hard to articulate why I chose ‘a new myth’ to be reissued on this white label series and this cultural restructuring is the closest I’ve come to explaining my fascination with the record and why I think it’s an important document to the sound and spirit of a South African artistic generation who looks back while travelling forward. To talk about African music is to talk about motion, about how representations of a spiritual ontology which runs counter to the now hegemonic western mode of thought necessitates the ability to continually morph into a reflection of the wider world, albeit in forms that may not satisfy the hierarchical criteria imposed by a culture viewed as capital, in the west. The Brother Moves On have created an album possessed by a spirit of transformation, it subverts tired notions of what it is to be an African artist in our times and infuses our understanding with dreams of a place where all musics and people sing a common song, and reflect ‘A New Myth’.”
