Album Review: Orchestre Poly-Rhythmo de Contonou, "Echoes Hypnotiques"
Seventies afrobeat group from Benin. Obvious RIYL is Fela, but more given to weird psychadelic guitar and drone-y Highlife rhythms. Which makes it pretty cool. Play any and all, none particularly stand out to me, but be warned, 6 and 8 are longer than 9 minutes long.
