10 Notable Minnesota Albums of 2018

Astralblak – “Seeds”    Seeds  — Astralblak’s first release since switching their name from ZULUZULUU — sounds more pensive than their debut EP  What’s the Price . Where the Afrofuturist five might have once reached for a bright-sounding keyboard, they now present panflute; synths are tuned down and vibes dialed up in “Jerkin.” But they still make it bump. “Sand Houses” and “Waves” sound great on a car stereo, and when former member Trelly Mo rejoins the Tribe for the  Dirty Mind -copping “Feels,” the groove gets thick as butter. This 15-song collection takes full advantage of its size, leading you from the stars to the bedroom and back. –  CJ      https://blog.thecurrent.org/2018/12/10-notable-local-albums-of-2018/
