'Now (Forever Momentary Space)' by Damon Locks and the Black Monument Ensemble drawn from 9 April International Anthem release Now is streaming. It's fresh and appealing in a highly arranged way after the samples dominated democratically by fine clarinet playing from Angel Bat Dawid. Sound collage artist, composer/lyricist Locks in the album's collective personnel is with Dawid, cornetist Ben LaMar Gay, drummer Dana Hall, percussionist Arif Smith and singers Phillip Armstrong, Monique Golding, Tramaine Parker, Richie Parks, Erica Rene and Eric Tre’von. Remaining tracks listed are: 'The People vs The Rest of Us', 'Keep Your Mind Free', 'Barbara Jones-Hogu and Elizabeth Catlett Discuss Liberation', 'Movement And You,' and 'The Body Is Electric.' Group mind is all, the lead-off track paints a giant call-to-action canvas.
