Ancestral Duo is the collaboration of multi-instrumentalists Jamal Moore and Luke Stewart. The two channel the spirit of Ancestry through structured improvisation in unique electro-acoustic meditations that aim to reach deep within one's soul and offer a connection to the past, using the power of the present, looking toward the future.

Free-jazz? Post-hardcore? Noise? Black Myths consistently show just how much they have to say using such sparse means. Their striking power is huge, the album has lingered in my mind for a long time. Contrary to sophisticated Llovage, Black Myths are all about reflecting the emotions, revolt and anger of the African American community through music. Owing to its form, this is both a musical and a political statement. And it’s stirring to the core. Jakub Knera
Intriguing, enchanting and terrifying all at once. To me it's the perfect soundtrack I'd envision for waking up in a strange nation and not knowing the name of the place, or any contextual understanding about the culture, or even remembering how you got there in the first place. It has the capacity to be a negative or positive experience in equal measure, a testament to the two talented women behind this record. Ben Harris
