Let's forget who is in the group. I will get to that later. The music. It flows. It trips. It's smooth as shit. Wow. Map of Africa wants to take you on a journey. They are not forcing you, but you want to go with them. Any plans you had take a back seat, and you start reaching the stars.
The production is amazing but somehow creates a fuzzy vintage sound with bluesy guitars and spaced out drums.
Harvey (DJ Harvey) and Thomas Bullock (A.R.E. Weapons, Rub n'Tug) team up with Carlos, the head of Whatever We Want Records to create this sick LP.
What makes it even more enticing is that Whatever We Want releases are limited edition runs in beautifully package 12"s. Get it while you can because once they run out, prices go up for secondhand editions.
Brooklyn has its surprises.
