Unstraight Ahead
2LP | 2014 | US | Original (Now-Again)
26,99 €*
Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
It’s been some years since the first Karl Hector release, and it’s known now that Mr. Hector is indeed the German producer and guitarist JJ Whitefield, ne Jan Weissenfeldt. Whitefield is the visionary behind the Poets of Rhythm and the Whitefield Brothers, the ensembles whose rough analog sound and return to the funk archetypes of the late 60s to early 70s paved the way for labels like Daptone, Truth & Soul, Timmion.

"Unstraight Ahead" finds the band exploring territories even outside of the expansive scope of Sahara Swing. On this album, the West African sounds of Ghana and Mali meet the East African sounds of Mulatu Astatke’s Ethiopian jazz and are tied together with the groove heavy experimentalism of The Malcouns’ 70s Krautrock godfathers: Can, of course, but also more obscure and equally adventurous groups like Agitation Free, Ibliss and Tomorrow’s Gift.

Following their deft handling of musics from Eastern and Northern Africa alongside Western psychedelia, jazz and funk on "Unstraight Ahead", Karl Hector & The Malcouns combine the previously available only on vinyl tracks from four EP’s - "Tamanrasset", "Ngugna Yeti Fofa", "Coomassi" and "Ka Rica Tar" – into an album as Krautrock as Afro Beat, as Multi-Culti-Psychedelic as Deep Funk.
