    Concrete Lates: black midi

    +Moor Mother

    Fri 12 Nov, 10.30pm
    Queen Elizabeth Hall Foyer
    past event
    Drag race black midi cartoon for Concrete Lates in November 2021, as part of Pitchfork Festival and EFG Jazz Festival.

    Dynamic, inventive and hellacious: the exciting and challenging young rock band presents their second album, Cavalcade.

    The follow-up to Schlagenheim scales beautiful new heights, reaching ever upwards from an already lofty base of early achievements.

    black midi picture their new album as a cavalcade, or procession, of larger-than-life figures strolling seductively past them.

    Drawing the listener inexorably into this mysterious world, Cavalcade is a glorious collection of stories just waiting to be dived into.

    Geordie Greep, the band’s mercurial guitarist and primary singer, explains: ‘The emphasis ... was to make music that was as dramatic and as exciting as possible. The flow has the feel of a story’.

    But the record is dynamic in its musical ambition above all else, taking inspiration from across rock, jazz, hip-hop, electronic dance music, classical, ambient, prog and experimental to create something brand new.

    Spend some time with Cavalcade and you’ll acknowledge black midi are back with the biggest of bangs.

    Support comes from Moor Mother (Camae Ayewa), an international touring musician, poet, visual artist and workshop facilitator.

    As Moor Mother, she released her debut album Fetish Bones to critical acclaim in 2016. Since then, she has released multiple albums each year, working with frequent collaborators Olof Melander, Mental Jewelry and billy woods.

    She is the co-founder of the multidisciplinary collective Black Quantum Futurism (BQF) and co-founder and curator of Rockers! Philly, and the recipient of multiple fellowships, residencies and awards.


    'The UK band stakes out even more ground on their glorious second album.'
