UK band The Comet Is Coming, or TCIC, released its first album last year.
Electronic jazz à la Stuff.

When Philippe mentioned the band last week, I thought I had heard the name before...
A bit of digging in my memory showed that I had seen them on tv.
On Dutch radio show Vrije Geluiden last year when they did a festival special.

The Comet Is Coming features
  • King Shabaka: saxophone
  • Danalogue The Conquerer: synthesizer
  • Betamax Killer: drums
Don't you love these aliases?
  • King Shabaka = Shabake Hutchings
  • Danalogue The Conquerer = Dan Leavers
  • Betamax Killer = Max Hallett
"Channel The Spirits" is a superb introduction to this trio.
Powerful psychedlic jazz. With a nice beat. The music has this nice flow. Really like it.

from 2014 :
The Sun Ra Arkestra with Shabaka Hutchings on the saxophone !!

And here's TCIC :
