On current form Analog Africa are unlikely to fall foul of the Trade Misdescription Authorities for this fantastic release is raw, psychedelic, likely to provoke a scream of joy or astonishment and very, very fine. There is little to add to the above two reviews. Analog's first six releases have been my musical discovery of 2010 and ASC is the ideal place to start. The music is indeed a melting point and all the stronger for it and makes much western funk of the same (or indeed any) period tinny, plastic and disposable. ASC provides incredible quality and value for money over its 70 minutes. The whole product is lovingly compiled from the evocative sepia-tinged photos and engaging and informative sleevenotes to the incredible consistency of output. There are no weak tracks but newcomers can do no worse than the opening "Mi Kple Dogbekpo" with its rousing call to arms refrain and almost mariachi-sounding brass or "It's a Vanity" by Gabo Brown & (the very wonderful) Orchestre Poly-Rythmo. Brown's wonderfulm rich voice soaring over that incredible backing track. In short, African Scream Contest: Raw & Psychedelic Afro Sounds from Benin 7 Togo does what it says on the tin and then some. Wonderful.
