Praed
Doomsday Survival Kit

Thrilling and unique take on chaabi from the Lebanese duo Praed. ‘Doomsday Survival Kit’ takes familiar cues from the hyperactive form of music, but the way in which they fuse the clarinet into the sound concocts something truly distinct. It's the way the clarinet interweaves and reacts against the restless rhythms and vibrant synths, an inspired synthesis.

The Dwarfs of East Agouza
Rats Don’t Eat Synthesizers

Don't they? Do we have proof of this? This remarkably titled album is the second album by this remarkably titled group which is a collaboration between Sir Alan Bishop (Sun City Girls), Maurice Louca and Sam Shalabi. Recorded in Cairo it blends wild guitar parts, crazed beats and the warm sound of acoustic bass.

Kink Gong
Tibetan Buddhism Trip

So field recorder Laurent Jeanneau decided it was a good idea to release his recordings of ethnic minorities and their music under the name Kink Gong. He was wrong of course but either way we have a beguiling recording from Tibet and Yunnan in China which has been recomposed by Jeanneau in Berlin to form Tibetan Buddhism Trip.
