Between The Cracks: 5 Albums You Need To Hear.With so much good music coming through thick and fast, it’s easy for brand-new music to drop online and go overlooked. To help prevent this, we’ve picked five albums that you need to hear. Stream new releases from Jungle By Night, and Coro Qom Chelaalapi meets Lagartijeando, Moulay Ahmed El Hassani, Jay Stone and Mal Devisa. If you like what you hear, support the artists.

 

Jungle By Night – Livingstone

Amsterdam nine-piece instrumental collective Jungle by Night recently dropped their fifth album. Sublime, deep instrumental cuts influenced by krautrock, dance, jazz, and afrobeat.

Coro Qom Chelaalapi Meets Lagartijeando – Revision

This brilliant collaboration between Lagartijeando and indigenous tribe Coro Qom Chelaalapi fuses ancient melodies with brooding beats and big grooves. The Revisión EP is a unique and special collaborative project that explores the tribe’s rich musical heritage with contemporary production. Highly recommended.

Moulay Ahmed El Hassani

Hive Mind Records dives into the music of Moulay Ahmed El Hassani, a multi-instrumentalist who has released over 50 albums over the past 30 years. The 12-track compilation features songs released initially on Ahmed’s label, Sawt el Hassani, between 2005 and 2012. Love this compilation!

Jay Stone – Calibration of an Altered Mind
‘Calibration of an Altered Mind’ perfectly showcases Jay Stone’s intricate wordplay partnered with his multi-layered storytelling ability and head-nodding beats. Love this album and looking forward to what he has in store for us for 2019.

Mal Devisa – Mystery Tsrain
Mal Devisa’s recently shared three new surprise EP’s, and this is our favourite. I had never heard of Devisa when I randomly stumbled across her work on Bandcamp last week, but she’s quickly become a new fave. This refreshingly unique project of genre-crossing music is something you need to hear. I love it.
