13 Faces of Lightning Heads was recorded in the South of England and not in Lagos like it sounds. It’s an album brimming with a respect for the source inspiration of Afrobeat and funk but which manages to infuse it with with touches of reggae, hip-hop, club music, global sounds and dub. I’m loving this.
