*Exclusive vinyl-only EP by the world-psych-funk ensemble; original artwork by Kevin Lyons screen printed by Hit & Run. Limited to 1000 copies*

Karl Hector & The Malcouns were discovered by Jay Whitefield (producer and guitarist for the Poets of Rhythm and the Whitefield Brothers) and Thomas Myland and Zdenko Curlija. Alongside Bo Baral, other members of the Poets of Rhythm and crack Munich-based session musicians, Whitefield, Myland and Curlija crafted nearly twenty tracks for their debut, Sahara Swing, an album that swung with influences from across the African diaspora.

Tamanrasset is the first from a series of vinyl-only EPs. Tamanrasset‘s five songs demonstrate The Malcouns’ deft handling of musics from Eastern and Northern Africa alongside Western psychedelia, jazz and funk; the song “Girma’s Lament” - its title an homage to the great Ethiopian pianist, arranger and vocalist Girma Beyene - is a great representation! Recommended!
