New Music: Sidewalk Chalk – “A Suite For Black Lives”

This Chicago-based jazz/hip-hop/soul sextet continue to deliver the goods as they whet our appetite in anticipation of their crowd-funded new LP due on June 2, An Orchid Is Born. First there was “Dig“, a striking exploration of the words we never get to hear from the victims of police violence, and today we have “A Suite For Black Lives”. Sidewalk Chalk dives in again on the foremost social issues of the day here with a direct, visceral attack on the role of racism in police and state violence. Check out the exclusive premiere of the track at AFROPUNK.
