Bellyachers, Listen Songs From East Africa, 1938-46
The first half of the Something Is Wrong CD set, beautifully pressed and presented, with its own twelve-inch-square booklet.




To Scratch Your Heart Early Recordings From Istanbul
A New York Times tip: 'I have heard no more beautiful record this year... a righteous calm takes over the album like a spirit force.'



Foster Manganyi Ndzi Teke Riendzo
Sublimely convulsive Shangaan electro-gospel by a South African pastor, brimming with aching, mournful spirituality.



Trembling Bells New Year's Eve's The Loneliest Night Of The Year
A terrific, bountiful seasonal single with Bonnie Prince Billy in his cups on one side, and Mike Heron from The Incredible String Band on the other, with a Boxing Day ghost story. Beautifully sleeved, limited.



Wareika Hill Sounds Kumina Mento Rasta
Headlong, fierce, banked rasta drumming fit to discombobulate any kind of system, with sweet, jazzy trombone riding it down, bubbling bass driving it home, and all of it classically dubwise.



Moritz Von Oswald Trio Live In New York
Guests Carl Craig and Francois K bring a fresh, pulsating energy and rough urgency to the bristling, live trio sound, deeply dubwise throughout, with startling splashes of Sun Ra in the effects.



Martina Topley Bird Some Place Simple
Spine-tingling intimacies from the Maxinquaye singer, voice of Gorillaz and Massive Attack a personalized songbook, with the spotlight on her gorgeous voice and fine songwriting, uncovered, frank and alive.



Shangaan Electro New Wave Dance Music From South Africa
An astounding compilation of the breakneck Shangaan dance output of the Nozinja studio in Soweto, recorded between 2006 and 2009.



Actress Splazsh
Dazzling melds of classic Detroit, grime, dubstep, speed garage, Paisley rock, synth-wave and the rest, with none other than the man not-himself crowned king.



T++ Wireless
An occult homage to UK garage two-step waylaid in the scuffed, churning, sub-heavy geography running from Chain Reaction days to Monolake, mysteriously entangled with distressed trails from old Ugandan 78s.



Trembling Bells Abandoned Love
'brilliant... concise, deeply romantic, totally original ****' (Mojo); 'freewheeling and delightfully quirky ****' (The Guardian); 'CD Of The Week... terrific' (The Observer); 'like nobody ****' (Sunday Times).



Katell Keineg At The Mermaid Parade
'**** CD Of The Week... everything her followers have long cherished about Keineg... An uncompromising and long overdue return' (Sunday Times).
**** Daily Mirror; **** Financial Times.




Actress Paint, Straw And Bubbles
Three exclusives trailering the Splazsh album, including a carnivalesque house banger from Zomby. Out Detroit, UK bass science and UK funky, cold wave and Kraftwerk... a London thing, mongrel and dashing.



Africa Boogaloo The Latinization Of West Africa
Rocking the party and ramming the dancefloor is the first priority of this review of Latin styles in classic West African dance music, as it emerged with 1950s anti-colonialism, and ran on gloriously into the 70s.
