Album Review: Cavalcade by black midi


Album: Cavalcade
Artist: black midi
Release Date: 26 May 2021
Label: Rough Trade
Favorite Tracks:

  • “John L”
  • “Hogwash and Balderdash”
  • “Ascending Forth”

Thoughts: black midi are an experimental rock band from the UK with hints of prog rock, jazz fusion, and just plain noise. Their music is not easy to describe but it’s defined by odd rhythms and unexpected chord changes.  There’s a bouncy guitar and bass rhythm on many tracks that reminds me of Primus but nothing else does.  It’s definitely something worth checking out if you’re looking for something different.
