On September 27th, soul/electo artist Georgia Ann Muldrow released a series of instrumentals in the album “Oligarchy Sucks”. In “Baroque Ditty Thang” she features the metallic soundings of a harpsichord. In “Caio” there is the driving rhythms of a bongo drum. Each instrumental of the album is distinct and captivating in its own way. The song “Queen Knockingstein” features a repeated rhythm altered not so much as to disrupt the flow of the piece but maintain the focus of and continue to fascinate the listener. The albums overarching purpose is to empower listeners from being ruled by oligarchies.
