Release Date:05/13/2016;Notes:Limited vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release, the follow-up to their eponymous debut, an album that won the band a range of awards including Songlines Magazine's Best Newcomers 2015. Cosmic Unity, like the band itself, mirrors the mixed-up, intercontinental terrain of their home town. Moving through genres as diverse as psychedelic highlife, steel-pan Ethio-funk, calypso, baião and scorching equatorial jazz underpinned by deep afro-Atlantic dance rhythms, they have created a cohesive, forward-looking sound that echoes classic tropical recordings of the past whilst still sounding fresh and contemporary. Lush string and horn arrangements give way to acidic commentary on the immigration system and slavery as well as incantations of unity. Producer and multi-instrumental director, Jack Yglesias (also a core member of the underground pyschjazz- funk unit The Heliocentrics) leads the explosive ensemble. Alongside Jack, the band features the powerful vocals and poetry of Venezuelan diva Luzmira Zerpa and the percussive West African mastery of Nigerian/Ghanaian Kwame 'natural power' Crentsil as well as Adrian Owusu (guitar).;Track List:1.
