Religions (Album)

Purple Eternity Records, 2021

Album by Big Shit Posse / Released April 10, 2021

Before the live show from October 29, 2020 was recorded and eventually made up the material for their debut album The Big Sun Authority, Big Shit Posse was going through several rehearsals to refine their sound and work on the most recent compositions provided by Aldtie Mann. One of these rehearsals was the band’s session from October 20, 2020, where the newest rendition of “Religions” was rehearsed and improvised on. The goal was to play through the track while constructing and deconstrucing improvisations, for one entire hour, with the performance being directly recorded to tape. The outcome is an epic journey through various dimensions of modern Jazz that sees the band invoking a spheric space with captivating energy and dynamic. This very performance is captured and presented here on the band’s second album: imagining, building, exploring, unleashing, retreating. Five chapters. One closed circle.

‘Religions’ is the second album by Big Shit Posse, and the follow-up to their debut The Big Sun Authority, containing edited audio from the band’s recording session from October 20, 2020.
