1. Product Details
Vinyl LP pressing. Bells Atlas' latest offering The Mystic digs further into their soulful buoyancy to explore both sound and storytelling. Sandra Lawson-Ndu, Douglas Stuart, Geneva Harrison, and Derek Barber stumbled upon a new process for songwriting - of which included sampling grainy phone recordings of the band's drummer - that elevates Bells Atlas'already unique approach to psychedelic R&B. The spontaneity of the mystic's creative process results in a raw, cosmic sound that is mirrored in it's lyrics. The record is a sci-fi fantasy of two first-generation Nigerian American women coming to terms with a mental health diagnosis, and at the same time, a very universal exploration of how we make sense of reality. "It's about a truth seeker and a skeptic trying to make sense of what's mystical and what's clinical," Lawson-Ndu says. The listener is made to consider the possibility of magic. Is it possible, for instance, that someone who navigates the world differently may have a deeper understanding of the universe? The Mystic is a spectrum of deep emotionality, impulse, and even humor; a tool to explore the full dimension of our reality.
