Karl Hector & The Malcouns "Sahara Swing"
Sahara Swing is currently being touted as an album of Afro-flavored funk, but the term doesn't really sum up the musical content of the release. Working with Poets of Rhythm producer Jay Whitefield, Karl Hector has crafted an album that's as much James Brown as it is Fela Kuti, as evidenced by swinging guitars, slinky basslines, and scattered snares on the title track. Hector has, to date, only appeared on one 7", but this album, release via Stones Throw affiliate Now-Again, should ensure his persona brought to life in full.
