about

Damon Davis, aka LooseScrewz, has been a driving force within St. Louis and regional cultural and political domains. For the majority of the past decade, Davis has played instrumental roles in producing and curating art projects, both audio and visual, that time and again transgresses disciplinary and cultural boundaries with the express purpose of raising social awareness. Now, after an extended hiatus from the recording studio, Davis announces his forthcoming series of concept albums entitled Loa, born of his study of African-American voodoo traditions in the American South. Consisting of three distinct installments, the first album, simply called Loa Act 1 will be released March, 6th, 2016 though Farfetched, the St. Louis/regional art imprint he founded in 2011 . Interweaving meditations on subjects as race, myth, futurism, and history, the trilogy promises to not only decode the genesis of these concepts and their institutions but also to tease them apart in order to encode them with new meanings with the potential to alter the course of their future unfolding.

Track Name: The Vessel (Siren's Song) ft. Sunyatta McDermott
I woke in a pit
In my own shit
Chained to another
Steel around my wrist
Steel around my neck, steel around my legs
Gash across my face, blood pours from my head
It's so dark I can't see
And I can barely breathe
We so close together swaying from the sea
I know I'm on a vessel but how could this be
I was just asleep, is this just a dream
I can feel the pain, I can hear them weep
I looked up to the heavens
Have you forsaken me

Loa (repeats)
Track Name: Orginal Man ft. Ciej and 18andCounting
Dust through my hands, dust through my hands
We fly on this comet away from this land original man
