Xhurch Sabin (Portland)
In spring 2015, Grant Corum pulled up stakes in our fair city and moved to the East Coast, settling in Maine. The relocation hasn't slowed his output as a musician; last year he treated us to the gloriously fucked album Poderoso Monicato by his psych jazz band Millions Brazilians. This year sees the release of Magic Mirror, a new solo collection that finishes out a loosely themed trilogy of solo records. The new LP is world music in the broadest sense of that term, incorporating drum rhythms from Africa, instrumentation from the Middle East, and very Western electronic elements. Corum hasn't been back our way in a while, so this performance at Xhurch should have a welcome celebratory and hypnotic vibe, which will perfectly match the incantatory spirit of his work.
