One of the most important albums of the year by Speaker Music on Planet Mu


Rhythmanalyst, media theorist and curator DeForrest Brown Jr. released Black Nationalist Sonic Weaponry on Planet Mu. Black Nationalist Sonic Weaponry is an album of street-level fire music exploring poet Tsitsi Ella JajiI’s concept of “stereomodernism.” It’s a second release of DeForrest Brown Jr. as Speaker Music for Planet Mu. It channels the modernist Black tradition of rhythm and soul music as an intellectual site and sound of generational trauma, bursting through the frames of Western music and thought. Planet Mu called Black Nationalist Sonic Weaponry “one of the most important albums you’ll hear this year.”

A PDF booklet of collected writings by Black theorists and poets provides further context featuring 'Amerikkka’s Bay' written and spoken by Maia Sanaa, and remixed by Brown, Jr.

All label profits from this release will be donated to BEAM and M4BL.
