Assume Crash Position
Last weekend I was lucky enough to catch the incredible Congolese Trance hurricane of Konono No1. at Matt Groening's ATP (live clip) alongside brilliant sets from Amadou & Mariam and Toumani Diabate.
Anyways, Konono smashed it, like a Brazilian street carnival warped through a rusty Congolese distortion pedal. They've just dropped an awesome new album called Assume Crash Position on Crammed Discs. This is a particularly nice one.

And for the vinyl lovers Crammed have released a full Congotronic box set featuring an amzing collection of material by Konono No1, Kassai Allstars & Staff Benda Bilili.
