The new LP from Tio'tiá:ke/Montreal staple Cedric Noel is a high water mark in the young artist’s already deep catalogue. Hang Time shifts fluidly between rock, folk pop and ambient elements, holding tensions and untangling complex truths. Written during a period of intense self-reflection, his eighth album digs into what it means to be disconnected from place/ancestry, adopted into a multi-racial family, what it is to be Black man in a predominantly white scene, and how one can arrive at a place of pride amidst the multiplicity of self.
