Label: Crammed Discs
Although this Kinshasa-based collective are favorites among the electronica and drone-rock set, the Congolese supergroup remains defiantly analog, even when feeding thumb pianos through crackling amplifiers. The percussive tracks here may be long and circular, much like the DIY rattle of fellow Congotronic travelers Konono No. 1, but most cuts also feature supple electric guitar lines familiar to any Afropop enthusiast. And they proudly represent the Kasai region in all its multiethnic 21st century glory, warning of "Yangye, The Evil Leopard," while also singing "In Praise of Homeboys."
