Quakers - II: The Next Wave 2LPStones Throw
Double vinyl LP pressing. Eight years after their self-titled debut on Stones Throw, Quakers are back with II: The Next Wave. Quakers is an ever-evolving collective of music with core members Geoff Barrow of Portishead and Australian producer Ashely Anderson. True to the group's collaborative spirit, the producers invited over twenty rappers from the Stones Throw stable and beyond to contribute to II: The Next Wave. Much like Quakers' self-titled debut, II: The Next Wave is loud, unapologetic and blunted. It's also more explicitly political, with songs that speak directly to systemic corruption, racism, and the climate crisis.
