Comet is Coming: Afterlife LP
"Bridging the gap between experimentation and accessibility" (Rolling Stone), The Comet Is Coming return with the highly-anticipated mini-album The Afterlife which serves as a companion piece to the group's breakout album Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery. Taking synthesizer-driven psychedelic jazz to the masses, on Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery, the band (comprised of Danalogue (synthesizers), Betamax (drums), and King Shabaka (saxophone)), delivered an album of 21st Century spiritual jazz that was lauded by fans and critics alike.
"The two records can be seen as companions, that cannot exist without each other, like day and night, light and dark, creation and destruction. They were made together, at the same time, and have always been intended to be experienced together," explains Danalogue. "The Afterlife has been a topic of deep consideration and one of the keys to spiritual mythology around the world for millenia...The idea of a form of continuation of consciousness from our perceived reality into another state brings an extra dimension of meaning into the gravitas of our actions in this life, our respect and reverence for our ancestors, as well as the sense of a continuum of life over an infinite, timeless void."
