For ears accustomed to steady beats and English-language tunes, listening to sounds from places like Africa, Eastern Europe and Asia can be at times enlightening and sometimes confusing. Globalista aims to bring global sounds together in accessible, photography-splashed packages, and it succeeds-to an extent. The majority of the tunes on here-party-ready sounds from popular African group Poisson D'Avril, Chilean band P?nico and the surprisingly bling-bling Turkish pop-hop of Erkekler Y?z?nden-are intriguing listens, but the vast array here is a bit too far-flung to cohere. Still, the incredible energy of the songs on this disc is nothing if not inspiring.
