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.



Tradi-Mods vs. Rockers Alternative Takes On Congotronics
Remixes, reworks, tributes and what have you, by a cast of thousands including Deerhoof, Shackleton, Animal Collective, Mark Ernestus, Juana Molina and Andrew Bird.



Group Doueh Beatte Harab
A cosmic take on Saharoui roots: traditional Moorish instruments like the three-string tinidit lute, ardin harp, clay tbal drum, and tea glasses, together with guitar and Korg synth, and Halima's exalted singing.




The Psychedelic Aliens Psycho African Beat
Spectacular revival of three reliquary singles by this Ghanaian outfit from the turn of the sixties, juggling US soul and funk, psych and garage rock.




T. R. Mahalingam Essential Recordings Of Carnatic Bamboo Flute
Re-presenting two albums, from 1969 and 1970: with drone and percussion, ravishing, masterful, existentially searching flute improvisations, lit up at intervals with trails of melodic, knees-up folk.



Arthur Verocai Timeless
Revisiting his monumental 1972 LP with Airto, Azymuth and co the album which puts him up there with Axelrod, Charles Stepney and Zappa. 'I could listen to it every day for the rest of my life,' says Madlib.



Ethiopiques 27 Tessema Eshete
Precious relics from Berlin, 1908. UNESCO has stumped up for a lavish presentation, with fine notes and translations; but surely the fly in the ointment is the difficulty of actually listening through the music.



Shorty Rogers Afro-Cuban Influence
Great big-band Latin jazz from 1958, with alumni like Manne, Rosolino, Holman, Geller, Bob Cooper; and no scrimping on percussion. Coupled with Shorty Rogers Meets Tarzan, from the following year.



Astrud Gilberto Now
With Deodato arranging, and the likes of Airto, Billy Cobham, Ron Carter and Mike Longo in the band, and bi-lingual lyrics, this is a winning balance of sexy and deft, jazzy and rootsy.
