John Wizards "Hogsback"
John Wizards, the self-titled debut LP from the South African group helmed by Cape Town multi-instrumentalist/producer John Withers and featuring the vocal talents of one Emmanuel Nzaramba, is out today via Planet Mu. To mark the release, the label has offered up "Hogsback," a particularly sun-kissed track from the record which serves as a concise example of the sorts of bassy hybrids the John Wizards are after on its debut outing—modern African pop brimming with electronic influences around its edges and imbued with an insatiable taste for musical adventure.
