Armadillo Music

In These Timesis the new album by Chicago-based percussionist, producer and composer Makaya McCraven. This is the album McCravens been trying to make since he started making records and his patience, ambition and persistence have yielded an appropriately career-defining body of work. With contributions from over a dozen musicians and creative partners from his tight-knit circle of collaborators including Jeff Parker, Junius Paul, Brandee Younger, Joel Ross, and Marquis Hill the music was recorded in 5 different studios and 4 live performance spaces while McCraven engaged in extensive post-production work at home.the 11 song suite was created over 7+ years, as McCraven strived to design a highly personal but broadly communicable fusion of odd-meter compositions from his working songbook with orchestral, large ensemble arrangements and the edit-heavy organic beat music that hes honed over a growing body of production-craft.
