Moor Mother: The Motionless Present

Neil Kulkarni, The Wire, May 2017

COMMISSIONED BY The Vinyl Factory for the 2017 CTM Festival, The Motionless Present handily returns Moor Mother at just the point where the memories of 2016’s Fetish Bones were starting to pull and snag. That album was fierce, fearless and thrilling, and The Motionless Present is no less compelling, perhaps even more chilling and suggestive than anything Camae Ayewa has made to date.
