Episode 409: The Comet Is Coming's 'Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery'

The end is nigh, and The Comet Is Coming’s latest effort, Trust in the Lifeforce of The Deep Mystery, may be the perfect soundtrack for the end of the world. Since 2015 this jazz/dance/sci-fi trio featuring saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings (“King Shabaka”) on saxophone, Dan Leavers (“Danalogue”) on keys, and Max Hallett (“Betamax”) on drums has mounted a sonic assault on the apocalypse and the forces of evil, and Lifeforce is their strongest salvo in the war of darkness versus light yet.

Special guest Wes Covey joins us to as we explore a new universe of sound and experience from a band whose inevitable ascension to legend is just getting started. It’s the end of the world as we know it and there’s nowhere to run because The Comet is Coming for us all.

While their sound has slowly evolved, the mission remained the same: to get people of all backgrounds to come together and dance
