Our friend Bonzai Tarzan left Music City for a long trip in the wildest wastes of the Andes and came back with some amazing material that will appear in the toekomstsy mists of the ever approaching future in the form of a mixtape. In the meantime, he asked us to share the entirety of his diaries of his explorations in the field of old records and waxwings on board of the Inflatable Titanic.
Your faces will be landscapes. Their lines, curves, surfaces and volumes will be hills, rivers and valleys. They will welcome rainbows, pyramids, hearts, foots and fruits...

Hello. May we recommend this tape to you? Bafoulabé was recorded and mixed by Gerard Herman from FM Radio recordings made in Senegal and Mali during the Winter of 2013. It's just been released by Social Harmony in an edition of 50 copies (and in an unlimited digital edition)... So I guess you'd better act fast if you need the physical thing (which looks great, by the way). There's a 3'34'' fragment on their website - that I can't embed here for some reason that remains a mystery to me. All info here: http://socialharmony.bandcamp.com/album/bafoulab
