Baba Ali – Cog In The Wheel + Not Lovin’ You

baba-ali-nomadAlready compared to Tom Waits, D’Angelo, Jamie Woon, and Ibeyi, Baba Ali‘s music is both experimental and warmful. Discover “Cog In The Wheel” and “Not Lovin’ You” below.

Baba Ali has already worked, collaborated, and toured with Gold Panda, Little Dragon, Wolf & Lamb, and Voices of Black. When he writes on his own project, the artist is used to deal with varied topics, including his personal frustrations with capitalism or the visceral emotions felt across America in response to police violence like in his single “Not Lovin’ You.” About this track, the artist explains:

It’s unfortunate to know that I wrote this song about a year ago, when Ferguson was burning, and the message still remains relevant to what I see as a grave illness in America that hasn’t yet been properly addressed
