Matana Roberts releasing ‘Coin Coin Chapter Three’ (listen), playing release show in NYC with Rain Machine

by Andrew Sacher


Matana Roberts will release the next album in her Coin Coin series, Coin Coin Chapter Three: River Run Thee, on February 3 via Constellation. While Matana’s roots are in jazz, and she does have free jazz sax noodling sprinkled throughout the record, it’s nothing you’d need to be a genre expert to appreciate. Her spoken word, drifting singing voice, and otherworldly atmospheres have more in common with the experimental pop of Laurie Anderson or Julia Holter than what traditionally comes to mind when you hear the word “jazz.” Take a listen to two tracks, “Always Say Your Name” / “Nema, Nema, Nema,” below.

Matana will celebrate the new album with a release show in NYC, happening Febraury 3 at Union Pool with Rain Machine (the solo project of Kyp Malone from TVOTR) and Ryan Sawyer & Nate Wooley. Tickets are on sale.
