Positioning itself at the funkier end of the highlife spectrum, and based around an infectious guitar phrase, this gem from Ghana’s De Frank Professionals has been on constant rotation on the EE stereo. Available soon (but not soon enough!) on the Afro-Beat Airways’ compilation West African Shock Waves, Ghana & Togo 1972-1978.

De Frank Professionals – Afe Ato Yen Bio

Here’s something extra for the ‘End of the Road’ crowd from former Manitoba man Daniel Snaith in his latest incarnation as Caribou. This track is taken from the album Swim, a brilliantly consitant and coherent effort.

Caribou – Hannibal
