“Overload is Georgia Anne Muldrow's 16th album, and first for the Brainfeeder label, after a two-year break that, given Muldrow's abundant previous output, seemed like an eternity.

It was worth the wait. With Flying Lotus, Aloe Blacc and Muldrow's partner Dudley Perkins as executive producers, Overload is a tonic of exquisite psychedelic soul. Eschewing the experimental jazz of her Jyoti efforts and the straight hip-hop of 2013's Thoughtiverse Unmarred, Overload is a declaration and celebration of romantic love and loyalty as a fuel of collective resistance.

The title track and "Canadian Hillbilly" are romantic respites in the face of oppression, where cosmic synths bathe the cuts in an intimate aura, as Muldrow pledges lifetime trust and devotion, further emphasized on an endearingly spacey future funk take on the Gap Band's "You Can Always Count On Me" (which features Shana Jenson).” – Exclaim

a deep mix of jazz atmospherics and humid R&B, with a crate-digger's ear for collagist beatmaking. It's made her a natural collaborator for Erykah Badu and Madlib, and her boundless creative energy pushed her from the psych- and funk-inflected work of 2007's Sagala to the gracefully composed hip-hop of A Thoughtiverse Unmarred. That latter album capped a prolific nine-year run when it came out in 2015. Since then, she's worked mostly behind the scenes, collaborating with simpatico jazz artists like Robert Glasper and Keyon Harrold, and occasionally producing for other artists…

… Overload is suffused with love: love for self, love for community, and especially love for Muldrow's longtime creative and romantic partner, the rapper Dudley Perkins. Nowhere is this more evident than on the sumptuous title track, built around a dizzy calliope riff that she dedicates not only to the object of her affection, but to her own ability to love so powerfully for such a long time. - Resident Advisor
