BADBADBADNOTGOOD is a talented young quartet that has been on a critically acclaimed, rule bending musical journey ever since their formation in 2011. BBNG took the music world by storm with their previous LP, III, a brash yet refined record of angular Jazz improvisations, lush ballads, Kraut Rock, and futuristic Hip-Hop tinged rhythms which led to a couple years of touring the world and collaborating with some of the best and brightest artists around the globe. The boys are back with the new album IV, their most impressive and highly anticipated project yet. IV continues their forward thinking progression, sounding something like a jam session in space between Can, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock's Headhunters, Weather Report, Arthur Russell & MF DOOM. Always keeping an eye out for interesting collaborations, the album features none other than Samuel T. Herring of Future Islands, Montreal based producer Kaytranada,Colin Stetson on the bass sax, left field raps from Mick Jenkins and Charlotte Day Wilson. IV is an exploration in post-genre virtuosity.
