Jlin - Autobiography 2xLP
Jlin - Autobiography (Music from Wayne McGregor's Autobiography)
Planet Mu, 2018
Flint, MI footwork deconstructionist Jlin is back with an album that PR is going to great lengths to describe as "not her third album" like it's a damn Bhad Bhabie placeholder mixtape. But fuck that. Though it was recorded specifically as a score for British choreographer Wayne McGregor's Autobiography, this is as real and expansive and monumental as any album you will hear in your life, with Jlin adding an entirely new set of melodic and textural weapons to the pure rhythmic assault of last year's Black Origami. If this is just a minor side project then her proper full length will surely crush the whole planet.
