Artist: Irreversible Entanglements

Format: LP


“Infinite possibilities coming back around. I know we are more than circles”

Irreversible Entanglements follows up the scathing fire music of their debut with regenerative and ritualistic earth music. “Who Sent You?”, is a record that looks not only to the violent “rhythms of oppression”, past and present, that need to be burnt to the ground, but to a future built from the ashes of these unjust systems. “No más, No more will they divide and conquer, divide and oppress, define our humanity”. Irreversible Entanglements are simply one of the most powerful bands in existence, building their symbiotic improvisations with fervent passion, hypnotic rhythm, and urgent truths.
