After a more active summer schedule of weekly episodes, Rock Docs is back to bi-weekly broadcasting—for now. Today, your hosts, Andy Keatts and David Lizerbram, are back to discuss one of the most fascinating, enigmatic and impossibly cool artists of the past 50 years: Grace Jones.

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami is a verité-style film that follows Grace Jones over the course of several years in the 2010s. Directed by Sophie Fiennes, the film doesn’t delve into the art-pop icon’s rise to fame, early years or Island Records hits, but rather focuses on Jones as the subject at the time she was being filmed. She’s a charismatic and dynamic enough figure to carry the film on her own, without the aid of outside narration, and there’s plenty of live footage that’s worth the price of admission alone. She also makes a trip to Jamaica to visit with family, plus there are some scenes of Jones dealing with the slog of the business side of the music industry as well, and even some more touching and vulnerable moments.

This week we’re thrilled and honored to welcome special guest Kyp Malone of TV on the Radio, as well as his own solo project, Kyp Malone’s Rainbow Love Machine. And he absolutely brought the goods.

Listen to the full episode below and watch a trailer for Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami, which is now streaming via Prime Video.
