"Be Black Baby is an art-punk atom bomb."
"Its slinky, swirling guitar and jarring shout-sung vocals show both a deep understanding of punk’s underlying agitation and a vision of the exciting directions in which it can go."
"A soul and old school R&B-inspired take on art-punk."
"Ambitious, curious, and strange."
-Washington City Paper

Free-jazz? Post-hardcore? Noise? Black Myths consistently show just how much they have to say using such sparse means. Their striking power is huge, the album has lingered in my mind for a long time. Contrary to sophisticated Llovage, Black Myths are all about reflecting the emotions, revolt and anger of the African American community through music. Owing to its form, this is both a musical and a political statement. And it’s stirring to the core. Jakub Knera
