"Let Them Talk" has been stuck in our heads since the song dropped on Spoek Mathambo's 2nd full-length album, Father Creeper last week. The remake of the song from it's original release on Mshini Wam is a marker of Spoek's growth as a musician. In our interview with him last week (video below), Spoek talks about the Afro-futurist movement that he's largely associated with, saying that Afro-futurists often have to "rewrite the history, the future, and the present." In the video, released on Complex Mag today, Spoek redrafts a vintage big band-era party laced with psychedelic elements of an imagined "future."
