Robert Christgau on Sons of Kemet’s Unique ‘Your Queen Is a Reptile’

“This show of matrifocal bravado sharpens and embellishes Sons of Kemet’s unique and arresting sonics: West Indian Coltrane/Rollins over two drummers, tuba for bass, and occasional intoned vocals.” Robert Christgau, the self-described Dean of American Rock Critics, has some nice words and an A- rating for Sons of Kemet’s tremendous Your Queen is a Reptile. See them at Big Ears 2019.
