Here’s the latest installment in Casual Acid Tea’s ‘Secret History of Kind Men’ series, which sees modern bands reinterpreting songs from the classic historical compilation series ‘The Secret History of Mankind’ in their own style. This time round it’s the turn of Brooklynites Ramble Tamble to cover ‘Ta Magia Sto Pegadi’ from the Greek island of Epirus and ‘Raks Fazani’ from Tunisia as slices of lively modern psychedelia.

The former starts out dusky and atmospheric, teasing us into its gently swirling melodies before a total freak-out at the end with wildly bowed violin and manic synth twiddling squaring off against one another, like A Hawk And A Hacksaw possessed by Carlton Melton’s hazy psychedelic demons. On the other side ‘Raks Fazani’ is fast and repetitive, with manic string drones, deft little buried piano melodies and fuzz guitar and hypnotically looped melodic phrases bringing a kind of pastoral kraut feel to the African composition. Both tracks bring a deeply psychedelic tumbling east-meets-west kickabout which is genuinely unusual.
