Talibam!

Endgame Of The Anthropocene

About this item

"Endgame of the Anthropocene" marks Talibam!’s return to ESP-Disk, a partnership begun in 2009 with the highly acclaimed "Boogie in the Breeze Blocks" album. Talibam! is a 14-year working unit based in New York City that can be described in various ways: as a classic keyboards / drums expanded jazz duo, as Dadaist provocateurs with an innate love for the history of music, as a Fluxus-informed theater troupe, as an electronic ensemble inspired by Stockhausen, or as a rhythm section at the cross hair of agility, speed, punctuation, and intention. Since their inception in 2003, Talibam!’s ultimate goal has been to wed disparate ideologies through proficiency, controversy, inquiry, and compassion. Every Talibam! album attacks from a different angle; "Endgame" continues this tradition of each new release sounding completely different from everything they've done before, as does "Hard Vibe" (ESP5015), which will be released on the same day.
