MP3: NEW MATANA ROBERTS SOLO TRACK
Last year, Matana Roberts' magnificent COIN COIN Chapter One: Gens de couleur libres blew minds, garnering rave reviews and landing on Best-of-2011 lists at Village Voice, SPIN, Tiny Mix Tapes and Prefix. She will be joining us in Europe next month for our 15th anniversary celebrations, and as we gear up for these events Matana has shared a new recording of her solo work.
Those familiar with her playing will instantly recognize Matana's fluid, deeply affecting voice, cushioned by the beautiful reverb of a long-abandoned concrete warehouse steps from Constellation's Montreal HQ: the piece elegantly demonstrates a magisterial command of both the instrument and the space itself.
Listen to "vanhorne park midnight" below, and check our tours page for live dates.
