The Comet is Coming To Release New Music

Exciting news from Impulse! this morning: On March 15, the legendary label will release Trust in the Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery by the ecstatic and exploratory British trio The Comet is Coming. We’ve been listening to this record for a bit now, and The Comet is Coming have a newfound sense of restraint, with measured grooves and meticulous arrangements suggesting the spirit of Alice Coltrane and the rumination of Dawn of Midi. But the album’s first single, “Summon the Fire,” lives up to its glorious name, with a shrieking horn line, overloaded electronics, and a completely clattering drum line—a real power trio. Listen to the tune now, and see The Comet is Coming the week after the record drops at Big Ears 2019.
