Vinyl LP pressing. 2018 release. HERE LIES MAN took the music world by storm in 2017 with their self-titled debut positing the intriguing hypothesis: What if Black Sabbath played Afrobeat? Rough Trade named that album in their prestigious Top 10 Albums of 2017. BBC 6 and Classic Rock Magazine deemed it among the year's best, as well as countless other press outlets singing it's praises. This band comprised of Antibalas members quickly follow their auspicious debut with the even more thoroughly realized album You Will Know Nothing. It's eleven tracks expand upon the band's exploration of heavy riff-based rock and psych within the ancient rhythmic formula of the clave. Sonically, the dynamic range is thicker, crisper and more powerful on this album. It glistens as much as it blasts. The songs are even catchier, more anthemic, and the production reflects that of a band truly come into it's own. While it also certainly maintains it's gritty grooves, there's an interesting conceptual mathematics to the entire proceedings. Lyrically, the album is also an equally more conceptualized effort that reflects upon states of being and consciousness-a driving force that carries throughout the words and moods of all of the band's releases, interconnected to their trancelike music. This band have truly honed their sound and their focus, and soon, you will truly know nothing.
