Released:
Label: Sub Pop Records
This South African art-rock wild man hits hard on his Sub Pop debut, a dazzling collage of Afropop, electro, raging alt-rock, exuberant hip-hop and a dozen other polyglot styles. His rubbery voice conjures up TV on the Radio, but fractured-soul eccentric Cody Chesnutt looms large, too. There's a lot to absorb here, but the playful, pummeling "Let Them Talk" is a fine entry point, and the lyrics throughout are an evocative trip, be they soft ("We'll have our tombstones stuck together") or defiantly hard ("Play me some Tupac/ Get in your ride/ Snortin' gunpowder/ And drinkin' cane wine").
