The Comet Is Coming

HYPER-DIMENSIONAL EXPANSION BEAM

    The Comet is Coming returns with their second full length album on Impulse! Records. King Shabaka, Danalogue, and Betamax’s newest effort finds the Mercury Prize-nominated trio creating a musical landscape that is equally cerebral as it is physically enthralling. While containing elements of jazz throughout, this release leans further into heavy dance-hall themes, providing hypnotic, electronic soundscapes to dance to while keeping you intellectually stimulated.

    Death To The Planet was originally released for Record Store Day 2017CE, selling out of its initial run of 700 “Comet Fire” orange vinyl immediately. Unavailable on vinyl at retail since 2017, with huge Discogs/eBay demand. Darkness and light. The party to end all parties. The ghosts of 70s Harlem, via the warehouses of Chicago and Manchester, presided over by Sun Ra. The sound of total planetary destruction, produced with laser-guided accuracy and aimed directly at the dancefloor.

    The Comet Is Coming

    Prophecy - Repress

    Prophecy: “In the sky will be seen a fire, dragging a tail of sparks...” Just as Nostradamus prophesised in his quatrains, The Comet Is Coming: “The great star for seven days will burn, the cloud will cause two suns to appear and the big mastiff all night will howl.”

    The Prophecy: where it all began. These three planets aligned in 2013CE, having between them played with bands including Melt Yourself Down, Polar Bear, Soccer96 and Sons Of Kemet. They have since gone on to conquer the planet with the Mercury Prize-shortlisted Channel The Spirits and Impulse! album Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery. Here is the universe in a microcosm; the life-force distilled down to its raw essence: sex and dancing. Sub-bass, slamming analogue, unhinged sax breaks. The rhythm of life repressed earlier this year in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it run of 500.


    STAFF COMMENTS

    Millie says: One of the two Comet is Coming represses which were in incredibly high demand – the Prophecy is bursting with life from thumping irregular jazz triumphs at one point and spoken word with their unique ever-changing sound the next. Absolutely brilliant stuff!

    Prophecy EP

      "Prophecy" is your first taste of the impending apocalypse. Fear not, Danalogue The Conqueror (synthesiser), Betamax Killer (drums) and King Shabaka (saxophone) are here to spread light and joy and fire, for they are The Leaf Label’s new saviours.

      These three planets aligned in 2013, having between them played with bands including Melt Yourself Down, Polar Bear, Soccer96 and Sons Of Kemet.
      "Prophecy" is five tracks of freewheeling psychedelia and honking jazz punk mayhem. Here is the universe in a microcosm; the life-force distilled down to its raw essence: sex and dancing. Sub-bass, slamming analogue, unhinged sax breaks. The rhythm of life.


      STAFF COMMENTS

      Millie says: Originally released in 2015 and scarcely seen since, this is the debut 12" from trailblazing London jazz-punks The Comet Is Coming. Buy on sight alert!

      On Trust In The Life Force Of The Deep Mystery, the Mercury Music Prize-shortlisted futurist jazz voyagers The Comet Is Coming are making music for these crisis times of chaos and mass meltdown. The title of the album, the band say, concerns “finding meaning in that which you cannot grasp”, it considers “truth in the existence of a primordial energy”. It asks “What does it mean to be human? The music on the trio’s second record, out on impulse! in March 2019, fluctuates between pulsating, danceable, electronic groove-centric pieces and quieter, melodic jazz-infused compositions.

      The Comet Is Coming are: Danalogue (keyboards/electronics), Betamax (drums) and King Shabaka (saxophone).

      STAFF COMMENTS

      Millie says: Comet is Coming have sparked electricity with their new album, high energy jazz and a mixture of everything in between, hints of electronic and melodic interludes woven in masterfully. The trio are channeling existential questions and ideology but have certainly nailed their cosmic jazz sound, that’s for certain!
