The Invisible – Rispah

June 18th, 2012 // 1 Comment // Posted by Lukas

Rispah is the second album by The Invisible” out on Ninja Tunes. Brilliant, overwhelmingly rich in textures, .. an album i am sure to be listening for a long time. Must have, must listen!

Rispah’, the sophomore album by The Invisible and their first for Ninja Tune, is out now.

The album, “a love letter to grief” following the passing of singer Dave Okumu’s mother, is imbued with an inevitable melancholy but defined by a sense of hope. Throughout, the band reveal their rich creativity and musicianship. Echoes run through these songs of African music (including beautifully-woven-in samples of the singers from Okumu’s mother’s funeral), psalm tones and devotional music, In A Silent Way-era Miles Davis, hints of minimal classical composers such as Steve Reich and the wilder more psychedelic end of hip hop and related electronic musics.

Nothing is ever included for the sake of it, no attempt is made to patronise or sell the audience short. It’s a record brimming with real emotion and restless intelligence, a record to get lost in.
