Men in Burka/ Men in Burka/ Tundra
Really kick ass World-ish, RPM, Electronic album with hints of aggressive and political undertones. The album is the project from Modern Witch member Kamran Khan. It’s strangely perfect that this mix of weird, desert influenced, party bounce music is coming from Denver. The production reminds me of something that Switch would do for M.I.A. I’m delighted to have discovered this album and my favorite tracks are 2, 4, 7, and 9. Speeches at the beginning of songs can throw some people off. FCC Clean.
