Black Lives Matter. Save The Planet. End Inequality. ✊ 2020 SUCKS. Massive Attack just released a 3 song EP and it contains more insights on the sad state of our world than everything else you saw today. I am writing this on the day it was released, trying to process it and taking some notes.
This is one of my favourite live recordings of all time. I got the extended version for cheap bucks at a record store.
