about

New Orleans’ 13 Dreams, Justin Batiste and Jesse Zenon, have debuted with a fantastically lush album. While its title Post Gospel Disco might seem to do the work of classifying itself, the album achieves a cosmic quality by drawing from far more than gospel and disco. As self-described electronic explorers, Zenon’s dense, futurist instrumentation creates a genuine constellation of funk, disco, soul, R&B, indie, house, and prog. Within this constellation, the idea of “post-gospel” is clarified through optimistic, mature, and extroverted feelings and experiences, interpreted by Batiste’s vocals within the galactic synth cascade. Kirby Campbell’s mixing gives the album its dynamics and synth clarity: most tracks, at some point, burst to rave scale and calm to a cerebral tranquility. “The Power of Now” begins with a sample: “You’re not in the universe. You are the universe.” Post Gospel Disco feels like 13 Dreams is inviting us into their universe, to dance and feel. —Ben Miotke
