Former Crack cover star Fatima Al Qadiri is back with new music

With cover art featuring a Teletubby in riot gear, Brute is said to explore “the relationship between police, citizens and protest worldwide, particularly of [Qadiri’s] adopted home in the United States” and the label have added that the record “teeters between rage and despair” evinced in “restrained percussion, sampled and processed recordings of urban protest, and [Qadiri’s] signature minor progressions.”

Brute is out on Hyperdub on 4 March in CD, LP and digital formats. Revisit our 2014 Cover feature with Qadiri here and listen to Battery from the album below:
