My weekend listening consisted mainly of songs from this new super-limited reissue of early ’70s Zambian hard-psych from Amanaz, a band described in the press materials as “an African version of early Cream.” If you like your obscure, fuzzed-out stoner jams to transport you to another time and place, this is absolutely that. The whole thing gets better with each listen, plus a couple of these songs (not this one, though) sound like they’ve got an extremely high Dikembe Mutombo on vocals, which is just an added bonus.

Amanaz :: Khala My Friend

Get Amanaz’s Africa LP on 180g vinyl here; there are only 450 of them in existence though, so I imagine they’ll be gone soon.
