Recorded in the early months of 2020, Meteors Could Come Down finds LAL looking inward, examining the intricacies of their own relationship to understand how to provide care to their community. Experimenting with minimalism and a concise inventory of sounds, the album explores for the potential for open space offered through drums and voice—dually centering on the richly dynamic textures of Kazi’s vocals and Murray’s skilled ear for world-building through silvery synths and drum beats—to hold a great deal of emotive weight
It advocates for a complicated kind of hope that’s only available when the end feels near: that’s at times slow and grating; confusing and confounding; and urgent and breathless. On Meteors Could Come Down Kazi and Murray capture a lofty anticipation that’s uniquely available to artists who have long been on the frontlines of radical change: hope for the energetic transformation into a new world.
Their 7th album, Meteors Could Come Down captures the spirit of a season fueled by a moment of pause that stoked the embers of revolution. Inspired by road trips along the coast to radical DIY arts scenes in Oakland and Olympia, and Adrienne Maree Brown’s bestselling book Pleasure Activism, Meteors Could Come Down is both their most minimal, and intimate, album to date.
Utilizing concise inventory, Meteors Could Come Down, finds Kazi and Murr pulling back the curtain to examine the mechanical intricacies of their own relationship to understand how to provide care to their community. Hypnotic, opaque, glittering, and meditative; Meteors Could Come Down was designed to soothe, and settle into, building an album to support the many ways bodies utilize sound to repair. At its core, the album is fiercely futurist and a sprawling love letter to their chosen family and community that places the intimate space of (two) bodies as the first space of reconciliation. Together, they capture a lofty anticipation that’s uniquely available to artists who have long been on the frontlines of radical change: hope for the energetic transformation into a new world.
