The official sound of dumbing it down.
Overthinking is overrated.
Freeform in the strongest possible terms.

Ooh, looking forward to this episode. I really delved deep into African music in the '90s, and saw most of the greats when they came thru town, some of whom have since left us.

and hell yeah Fab! there's a lot here for you to sink your teeth into

Mr Fab:

I confess that I lost track of what's been happening in contemporary African music. Probably just lots of hip-hop, like everywhere else...
Avatar 12:15pm
Katherine Sage:

yeah none of this is "contemporary." it leans heavily into the 70's. the Awesome Tapes from Africa label sometimes puts out music from current artists

bands like Vampire Weekend wouldn't exist without music like this

It's weird to hear bands like King Gizzard incorporating Saharan guitar sound into their music.

Katherine Sage:

it's cool how Stu actually had one of his guitars modified with microtonal frets to actually play the notes required

I've been listening to blues revolution a lot recently

this one's almost 10 minutes long so settle in

Mr Fab:

it's great if you can find Nigerian juju records where they go on as long as they want. I have one (Ebenezer Obey maybe?) with only three tracks. It's awesome.

Fela Kuti was known for having albums with two songs on them, each song 30-ish minutes long
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:50pm
Jan Turkenburg:

I believe I have one with just one song that fades out on side one and fades in on the flip side.

The sounds right. A lot of African songs are built around a rift that goes on and on. They never seem to drag though.

even better

Katherine Sage:

also don't mind me completely screwing up backannouncing. i pre-record them monday night after work and i must've been especially tired last night

It's okay. I lost a back announcement last week. No idea how.

Jan Turkenburg:

just checked, it's a double album with two songs. one 26 the other 31 minutes in total

i usually blame the ADHD gremlins for stuff like that

they're always stealing stuff and making me forget stuff

Afro-tastic! Thanks, Katherine

wow... that went by quickly!

Thank you. Don't be surprised if I do some comments on past episodes as I catch up on archive listening. Enjoying the range that you include in your program.
