[Music] Various Artists – Africa Airways 03 (The Afro​-​Psych Excursion 1972 – 1984)

I have the pleasure to announce yet another amazing compilation of African psychedelica, courtesy of Africa Seven Records out of London, England. The music speaks for itself, but you’ll find a few familiar names here, including Manu Dibango.

[Music] Edward Ka-Spel – High On Station Yellow Moon

Though I loathe that I can’t simply buy a download from Edward Ka-Spel (too many of his latest Bandcamp releases are truncated version so that you’re forced to buy a hard copy, be it vinyl or CD), that’s his prerogative. The music is up to the standards one expects from the Legendary Pink Dots‘ frontman.

[Music] JOHN 3:16 – Sinner’s Prayer

  Wave after wave of beautifully crunchy, hypnotic drone is what makes JOHN 3:16’s new release (a reissue from 2011, apparently), a 30-minute affair, so appealing. The guitar playing is so heavily textured that you feel like a sonic blanket has wrapped you up, making you forget, albeit temporarily, the vagaries of the world.  Drone …

[Music] Tanbou Toujou Lou: Meringue, Kompa Kreyol, Vodou Jazz, & Electric Folklore from Haiti 1960 – 1981

It’s not often that I get to post on a release from Haiti, as I’ve never really had reliable contacts who could guide me to what treasures lie underneath that island which suffers so much.  This release from Ostinato Records, a small label out of New York who are doing some incredible reissues from various …

[Music] Martin Hannett’s lost Homage to Delia Derbyshire finally released on vinyl

Another debt of thanks is owed to the good Al Clark, who posted this treasure on another account. Martin Hannett is known as the producer who brought the best out of so many bands from Factory Records. He put together this paean to English musique concrete composer Delia Derbyshire, who did wonders for the BBC’s …

[Music] Introspect Void – Behind the Fallen Monuments of Time

I don’t know if today is Flashback Day, but the last three posts have brought some very, very good memories of the period in my life between 1988-1992, when I was absolutely immersed in Electronic Body Music (as well as the alternative music scene of my youth). Introspect Void are not a band from the …
