"Illusion Machine", the second album by Bret Higgins' Atlas Revolt is amazing. The debut on Tzadik was already killer but this easily trumps it.
Sounds a bit like Bar Kokhba, but they have enough of their own thing going on.
Lisna and Psy-Fi really need to check it out. Every single track rules.

^ Not bad. I listened to both albums this morning. Not sure if I'll add them to my collection yet. I'll have to give them a few more listens.

The $1000 (CAD) ($744.59 USD) price of the debut's download, put me off a bit.
I assume it's just a typo and the price is supposed to be $10 (CAD).

^ I couldn't resist that description, Psy-Fi, and I'm glad I didn't: both tracks are really good!

^ Thanks for the rec, grindy. That's a great track. One thing I liked about it was that I couldn't place it to region or tradition as you sometimes can with more generic world music.

Kasai Allstars - In The 7th Moon, The Chief Turned Into A Swimming Fish And Ate The Head Of His Enemy By Magic (2008)

In The 7th Moon, The Chief Turned Into A Swimming Fish And Ate The Head Of His Enemy By Magic




The debut album from "Kasai Allstars" out of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. I can't understand the lyrics but at times this music becomes quite hypnotic and psychedelic, suggesting an otherworldly realm.

Graciela Mendoza - Tierra en Flor: Música Ancestral para Niños


Another album that's quite psychedelic in spots. "Tierra en Flor: Música Ancestral para Niños" (Land in Flower: Ancestral Music for Children)

Ginger Johnson and his African Messengers - African Party (1967)

African Party




2015 re-release of the 1967 debut and only album from Ginger Johnson and his African Messengers. Too bad they didn't release more albums because this one is a 10/10 in my book.

Another great album where the drums are prominent. Chabela Ramírez from Uruguay with her 2013 release "De Tambores y de Amores" (Of Drums and of Loves)...

Listened to this at work today. Absolutely brilliant. Thanks for recommendation.
