GEORGIA ANNE MULDROW Shares Video for album title track “Overload” Out Now on Brainfeeder

“Dudley and I dropped by HARUN GALLERY (my FAVORITE coffee shop in L.A) to get coffee. Chase happened to be in, and he took us upstairs to his textile project studio where he and Gustavo were working on such colorful and brave pieces of clothing. I knew Capricorn had a passion for design (I had no clue that she was a legend but boy did I learn), so I asked to be their guinea pig. THEY SAID YES, LIKE TO SEE IT? HERE IT GO!” – Georgia Anne Muldrow

 

Today Georgia Anne Muldrow unveils the video for “Overload” directed by Capricorn Clark of HarunCreative. Addressing “the process of building loving relationships in spite of the malfunctions of Western society”, it’s the title track from her new album – widely regarded as her finest work to date – released on October 26, 2018 via Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint (a record label deeply embedded in her birthplace Los Angeles, with a ton of shared history, shared beliefs and a united vision of the future). It was justly acclaimed by Pitchfork (8.0) who paid tribute to her eclecticism, experimentation and individuality: “The restless avant-garde soul singer is still reinventing rhythm and blues for the future.. the epic scope of Muldrow’s body of work forms the funkiest of odysseys.”

 

“Overload felt like such a contrast between chaos and control that I wanted to find a subtle way to relay – in a way that allowed the non-core fans to meet her and gave the core a champion,” explains Capricorn Clark. “Aretha Franklin kept coming to mind, and an image of her in her dressing room kept coming back to me, so I built a world around that. Georgia is a huge being. She emotes this light, but she isn’t aiming for the spotlight, so I had to bring the light to her.”

 

Georgia will perform in London at the upcoming Brainfeeder X show at Brixton Academy on December 15th with her band The Righteous.

Praise for Georgia Anne Muldrow and Overload, out now on Brainfeeder:

 

“If “Aerosol” is any indication, ‘Overload’ may finally be an opportunity for a broader audience to catch-up with those of us who’ve long held Muldrow in such high regards—a fan club that includes Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Aloe Blacc (who executive produced the new album) and on and on” – Afropunk

 

“On ‘Overload’ storied producer, songwriter, and vocalist Georgia Anne Muldrow continues to combine soul, jazz, electronic, and hip-hop into an off-kilter, energizing blend, one that fits perfectly with her new label home, Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder. Discussing love and revolution, ‘Overload’ sounds massive and urgent, even when its arrangments are built on little more than whirring keys, thrusting shakers and cymbals, and Muldrow’s rich, soulful croon.” – The A.V. Club

 

“‘Overload’ continues the undefinable, iconoclastic work Muldrow’s been making since her 2006 debut, Olesi: Fragments of an Earth. She creates avant-garde music that’s praised by the likes of Yasiin Bey (fka Mos Def) and neo-soul pioneer Erykah Badu. Off-center sonic journeys that inspire, challenge, and reveal all sides of Muldrow—whether it’s Olesi’sthunderous free jazz, VWETO’s funk-rock-hip-hop hybrid, or A Thoughtiverse Unmarred’s cinematic rap—spring from her own thrilling and unpredictable energy.” – Bandcamp

 

“Georgia’s voice has always been out of this world, and that’s no different on ‘Overload’. She’s a true powerhouse, but she knows how to reel it in when she needs to as well. And the production is so lush, polished off with a shine but deep with layers. Georgia has long been one of soul and hip hop’s underrated treasures, and ‘Overload’ is proof that she hasn’t lost her touch one bit.”Brooklyn Vegan

 

“On her new album, ‘Overload’, Muldrow scales it back and skews toward straightforward R&B rather than the esoteric alt-soul, funk, and hip-hop for which she’s known. It’s still undeniably Muldrow: “Blam” calls for revolution, and “These Are The Things I Really Like About You,” featuring rapper and longtime partner Dudley Perkins, is all 1940s swing jazz. After years of being near the spotlight, it seems the world is finally ready for Muldrow’s music.” The FADER

 

“Muldrow has created soul music that not only sounds like it’s from another time but perhaps another planet.” KCRW

 

“Muldrow produced the majority of the tracks on ‘Overload’, and her singular vision guides listeners into the mystic from the first beat. That rhythm arrives in a Muldrow-produced track called “I.O.T.A. (Instrument of the Ancestors),” a celebration of percussion that serves as a trampoline into her muse. As with similarly spirited artists such as Erykah Badu, Nina Simone, Sun Ra and J Dilla, Muldrow is less interested in a narrow path into the mainstream as she is roaming in the meadows surrounding it. Her songs shift in structurally inventive ways, straying from standard song craft when the spirit takes her elsewhere.” – Los Angeles Times

 

“What could have been a straightforward ballad, with lyrics promising trust and friendship, lives up to the ‘Overload’ of its title with a swirling, multilayered track that sends voices, percussion and keyboards swirling around its slow trap beat; in all the burble, there’s a calliope-like cheerfulness.” – The New York Times

 

“No one sings a heavy love song like Georgia Anne Muldrow” – Pitchfork

 

“On ‘Overload’, Muldrow is in her most pop-focused space ever. The songs are tighter and the melodies are chirpier. It’s a release that refuses to pander to any identifiable trends, using sophisticated cosmic synths, rumbling basslines, and cutting lyrics. Look at this as Muldrow’s second debut— the record that future crate-diggers who have mined this undervalued-in-her-own-time star will recommend to friends first, before they work their way through her weird and wonderful catalog. It also might be her best album yet.” Pitchfork

 

“Over the years, this gifted Los Angeles singer-producer-multi-instrumentalist has collaborated with Erykah Badu, Sa-Ra Creative Partners and Madlib, so it’s no surprise that her latest full-length is packed full of unflappable funk.” – Rolling Stone

 

“Another worthy entry into the catalog of a truly gifted musician.” – XLR8R
