Hi, life!

I really should be angry at this sort of stuff (it being part of the whole "black and dead" thing, and probably more worthy of one of these than the example I actually used). But still, I can't help but think it's a bit charming that indie and electro artists have started aping mainstream African guitar playing. Yes, I realise it's a Paul Simon thing.

AJ Holmes - The Story of the New Electric Highlife

Vampire Weekend - Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa

And that's before we get to the involvement of this kind of sound into Funky House.
