Canadian ensemble BADBADNOTGOOD made their name by crossing genre. This seamless movement between style hit hard when they took hip hop into jazz and vice versa. Their latest album Talk Memory – and first with XL recordings – demonstrates them going back to their instrumental beginnings.
The album is a kind of aural odyssey, with all the sense of psychedelic narrative that entails and includes contributions from a breadth of multi-instrumentalists including Arthur Verocai, Laraaji, Terrace Martin, Brandee Younger, and Karriem Riggins.
