Marvin Tate's D-Settlement were Chicago's best-kept secret: a trailblazing, diverse band mixing R&B, soul, punk and funk with biting wit and political commentary. Led by Marvin Tate - a poet, artist, playwright and raconteur who wore pipe cleaners in his hair - and backed up by a dynamic cast of characters, their concerts were the stuff of legend.

They stole the show from acts like Antibalas and Bernie Worrell. They addressed transgender rights, gentrification and gun violence before they were trendy. But if you wanted to hear their music, they were out of luck. Until now.

American Dreams Records presents Marvin Tate's D-Settlement: a deluxe 3xCD box set, designed by Field of Grass (Numero Group, Paradise of Bachelors), collecting their three albums with an oral history book of the band. If you like Angel Bat Dawid, Theaster Gates, avery r. young - here's the blueprint.
