Camae Ayewa, otherwise known by nom de plume Moor Mother, makes beautifully discordant music laced with experimental jazz, poetry, noise, and Afro-futurism. It is at once unsettling and glimmering. 

Her works are syncretic; utilizing singing, yelling, and poetry. Yet Moor Mother frequently dials into the world around her in a candid way her peers may shy away from.

In 2016, Ayewa told Pitchfork, “I’m pissed because people who are supposed to be doing what I’m doing—their lyrics are mad soft. I feel like it’s getting there, it just takes time to get back to a more political place. But with this election, it seems like people are honestly worked up about it—and not just worked up as a trending topic.”

Now, the Philadelphia based musician and activist has released a pair of tunes for the Sub Pop Singles Club. The two part ‘series’ is titled Forever Industries and it hosts an ‘A side’, produced by Olof Melander, and ‘B side’ side produced by Mental Jewelry. 

This is the latest record from the one half of the collective Black Quantum Futurism since 2019. The album, Analog Fluids of Sonic Black Holes, was received with much acclaim. Earlier in 2020, she joined forces with neo-jazz phenoms ‘Irreversible Entanglements’ and produced Who Sent You?
