Deerhoof – Travels Broaden the Mind (Kasai Allstars Cover)

Tradi-Mods vs. Rockers : Alternative Takes on Congotronics

The Congotronics series has spawned a fervent following in the world of indie rock and electronic music… and now that world answers back in musical form. Crammed has asked a carefully chosen list of musicians (including Animal Collective, Deerhoof, Andrew Bird and many more) to come up with their own personal take on Congotronics. The result is this epic double album, consisting of 26 brand-new tracks from a wild mix of artists. They include covers, reworks and original compositions inspired by the electrifying sounds of Konono N°1, Kasai Allstars and other bands who play electrified traditional music (also known as “tradi-modern”).   (Crammed Discs)
