Karl Hector and the Malcouns – Girma’s Lament

Share Button

I’ve been waiting for these guys to follow up Sahara Swing for ages now. Looks like it was worth the wait. Jazz on drugs FTW, always.

The trio will now release a series of vinyl-only EPs – of which Tamanrasset is the first – that will culminate in their second album. Tamanrasset‘s five songs demonstrate The Malcouns’ deft handling of musics from Eastern and Northern Africa alongside Western psychedelia, jazz and funk; the song “Girma’s Lament” – its title an homage to the great Ethiopian pianist, arranger and vocalist Girma Beyene – is a great representation.
