The Round Up: March '16

THE ROUND UP: MARCH '16

MARCH '16


This is a selection of the albums, EPs and 12”s that we've had on repeat over the last month - the records we keep going back to. Some are discoveries of old, others are new releases, and a few are records we'd completely forgotten about. 

Of special note this month is Johnny Kafta's Anti-Vegetarian Music, based out of Lebanon; the return of Kano on Made In The Manor; Enid Records' Vibration Black Finger; and a few records we recently picked up on a trip to Istanbul, Turkey - in particular Okay Temiz's A Drummer of Two Worlds and some killer funk from Mustafa Özkent.
