Zongo Junction – No Discount LP
Slick Afrobeat bizness out of Brooklyn from Zongo Junction. This LP released on Electric Cowbell is an eclectic, well-versed and solid showcase of tunes that demonstrate an overall funkiness and appreciation of the roots with an undercurrent of jazzy, experimental interludes. Opaque White Vinyl. Niceness. Get it here.
