Colored People’s Time Machine examines the “history, dreams, and future of native people everywhere,” a claim with honorable intentions regardless of its oblique language. Casting a wide net for what “native” means, Teodros borrows aesthetics and ideals from across the globe in his words and beat selection, channeling the most evocative through his spitfire (yet too often staccato) flow. Gabriel – a vet with a handful of releases to his name – sounds more confident than ever, undoubtedly impassioned by the record’s point of inspiration.
