Every Sunday we stream a local and international album in it's entirety that we really feel you need to hear from beginning to end. Every album is a piece of mastery that the artists have produced to mark their legacy in the ever changing landscape of music. This week we're showcasing 2 albums that really express and engage with the 'arty' side to music.
"One thing is for certain. Kinda Like Electricity brings to light a quality of work that keeps building on its previous endeavours to weave a narrative of sound and story unlike any we’ve heard before. Time and time again, Andre and Lucy have reinvented the musical efforts of their roots without losing the soul that encompasses their musicality. Medicine Boy stands as one of the greatest bands South Africa has to offer." -The Fuss
The dream noise duo have three shows left in Cape Town before they head off for a Europe and UK Tour in September. You can catch them at the follow venues:
- 25 August – Bohemia, Stellenbosch
- 2nd September – Alma Cafe, Rosebank
- 3rd September – House of Machines, Cape Town
We'll be streaming "Kinda Like Electricity" from 5pm Sunday 21 August 2016.
This week's international album will be Tobacco's "Sweatbox Dynasty". Tobacco is an electronic musician has "trafficked over the years in the weird, the uncanny, the not-quite-right. He’s done so by taking human elements—often his own voice—and corroding them using filters like vocoder, talk box, and compressed synths that shudder like an atelectatic lung." (PItchfork)
"The new LP—his second for Ghostly International—finds the rural recluse resurrecting an old approach to hack a new path through the muck. This may be his most unintentionally psychedelic and left-field creation yet, full of rhythms that start and stop like a tractor on its last piston, resonating melodies made to fuel transcendental meltdowns, and vocals that hiss, gurgle, and growl." -Ghostly
Definitely an album you'll need to hear in it's entirety. We'll be streaming it from 6pm, Sunday 21 August 2016.
