Moor Mother’s contribution to the Sub Pop Singles Club Vol. 5 is Forever Industries, two phenomenal, atmospheric tracks of jazz-tinged experimental hip-hop recorded in early 2020. The songs speak about the temporal domain known as the future, making space, outer space, and industry. The A side is produced by Olof Melander, and the B side is produced by frequent Moor Mother collaborator Mental Jewelry; both tracks were recorded by Moor Mother in her home studio in North Philadelphia.
