More World, SWP records Africa

So many world music labels these days, but SWP (the guy who release
the music with the classy African pic on top with usually a green-ish
label
on the bottom of the jewel case) have put out a well rounded and rather
amazing look at some apparently rare music from tribes in the Congo
SWP011 Kanoyk and Luba 1952 & 1957 definitely provides a linkage
to today’s Brooklyn bound tribal love-offs. Pattering flute riffs, a
gritty
bass like tone underneath, drums so crunched they may as well be
white noise, and a kinetic chant that seems to build with out reaching
the seminal-sexual overtones of romanticised ejaculation that every
guitar pan orchestral blow out has to reach. Funny how that might
be an American ting.

p.s. I love trans-climatic orgasmic rock offs.

Objeto Amarelo or Brazil and well it’s ability to still beat us out at avant-pop John Corigliano or stuffy classical… still good
