Music Millennium

By May 2020, Marc Ribot had begun to find being depressed depressing. The guitarist and his Ceramic Dog triobassist/multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily and drummer Ches Smithhadnt played for months. With precautions in place, the trio headed to Ismailys Figure 8 Recording studio in Brooklyn and set about capturing eight originals that reflect the eras uncertainty. Originally, Ribot says, we were going to call it Better Luck Next Time, but that felt somehow unnecessary. Throughout Hope, Ribot flexes minimalist storytelling skills to sketch lifes ennuia kind of pointlessness that goes far beyond existentialism. This record, versus that last one, has more of the effects of political burnout, he saysand the overriding passion that drove Ceramic Dog back into the studio is palpably audible on every track.
