Ethiopia Super Krar

4.90 32

Contemporary Ethiopian sounds – and some mighty nice ones at that – like finding a lost volume of the Ethiopiques series, with some of the best 70s styles that scene had to offer! There's nothing phony about these guys – as they get their instrumentation and vocals right on the money – and are produced in a stripped-down style that really preserves all the intensity of their performance – a quality that's really up-close and compelling. Titles include "Guragigna", "Oromigna", "Konso", "Wello", "Ende Eyerusalem", and "Ambassel".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Long Way To The Beginning
Knitting Factory, 2014. New Copy
Some of the fiercest, hardest work we've ever heard from Seun Kuti – a record that bristles with anger and energy right from the start – and which really has him lighting a whole new sort of fire under the Eygpt 80 band! Seun's got this intense look on the artwork of the record – ... CD

The Fela Kuti legacy is alive and well – in this smoking set from Femi Kuti, with superb backings from the Positive Force ensemble! The album really has the younger Kuti coming into his own – moving with a righteous message that's stronger than anything he's ever given us – and ... CD

Knitting Factory, 1970s. New Copy CD & DVD
Hard to go wrong with a set like this – because in our opinion, just about every track recorded by Fela is a "best" – which makes the collection a massive batch of goodness all the way through! Every track here is presented in its original extended version – a dozen ... CD

Dust To Digital, 1960s. New Copy
Pretty amazing music from Morocco – sounds that are definitely as raw as promised in the title, but which also go way past what you might expect as music from 45s! First off, the tunes are much longer than usual for a 7" single – as most numbers are well over 5 minutes in length, ... CD

Isan Lam Plearn
EM (Japan), 1972. New Copy
Great work from one of the most enigmatic molam singers on the Thai scene of the early 70s – a vocalist with a really other-worldly feel, and a way of shaping notes that's completely sublime! The vocals of Angkanag Kunchai just get better and better with each fresh track on this set – ... CD

Sublime Frequencies, 1970s. New Copy
A great dip into the sounds of Algeria in the 70s – surprisingly great music, and surprisingly sophisticated at times too – with a vibe that often matches the best Turkish or Iranian records from the time! Most numbers here are from smaller 45s and EP release – and are hardly the ... CD

Aljawal
Soundway (UK), 2013. New Copy
CD...$9.99 11.98
Weirdly wonderful sounds from Debruit & Alsarah – a duo who offer up their own take on older Sudanese modes – but with a very stripped-down style overall! Most numbers feature just Alsarah's lovely vocals atop beats and keys from Xavier Thomas – used in modes that evoke older ... CD

Ibibio Sound Machine
Soundway (UK), 2014. New Copy Gatefold
A really fresh group with a very unique sound – a combo that's partly rooted in older Afro Funk modes, but who also deliver their groove with kind of a leaner, New York street soul vibe as well! The album's cover image really gets the groove right – as the vintage is more 70s through ... CD

Soundway (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2 CDs
Essential work from the African scene of the 70s – a collection of tracks that goes way beyond the more familiar grooves of Fela Kuti and Manu Dibango! The set may well be the deepest so far we've heard from the always-amazing Soundway Records – a package that digs into a wealth of ... CD

Ondatropica
Soundway (UK), 2012. New Copy
Colombian music, both classic and contemporary – as a group of older all-star players comes into contact with Will "Quantic" Holland! The set's easily one of the most smoking Latin-styled projects we've heard from Quantic so far – recorded in Colombia with work from Fruko, ... CD

Abayomy
Bolacha (Brazil), 2012. New Copy Gatefold
A hip Afro Funk combo from Brazil – and one who burn just as strongly as some of the other best groups on the global scene! The percussion here is especially great – super-tight, and wrapped up with these infectious basslines that already hook us in before the horns, guitar, and ... CD

Africa Brasil
Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy
A landmark recording that is one of Jorge Ben's best albums ever! The album is a perfect realization of the way that Jorge mixes Brazilian rhythms with choppy Afro grooves – and the result is a masterpiece that yeilded some of his biggest tracks ever. Included here is the great choppy funk ... CD
