We are very excited to welcome SK Kakraba, who will be appearing at Other Music for an in-store performance on Monday, October 5, to mark the release of Songs of Pappieye, out 10/2 on Awesome Tapes of Africa. (It's also the first release of newly recorded material that the label has ever put out.) The master of the gyil, an ancient Ghanaian xylophone, Kakraba's forthcoming album of solo pieces features entrancing compositions and improvisational modes that have been passed down by generations of hereditary musicians. His live performances are as stunning as his record -- no doubt this will be a very special evening, and we hope you will join us.
This week's Other Music Update includes anticipated new albums from the likes of Julia Holter, Kurt Vile, Dungen, New Order, Youth Lagoon, Carter Tutti Void, Disclosure, and much more.
