1. NEW MUSIC: Mo Kolours – “EP2: Banana Wine” (Free Download).

    Banana Wine is the second in a three-part EP trilogy by South London’s Mo Kolours – the first volume of which (last year’s Drum Talking ) was described by UK’s FACT magazine as “hashed out Madlib-meets-Theo Parrish beat confections.” Those words could also very well apply to EP2, as Kolours’ dubby, rootsy, Afro-Latin tinged tracks, and drowsy vocals evoke a pan musical mad scientist’s lab; a place where “Talking Move’s” dusty Luther Vandross sample can morph into funky, minimalist four-on-the-floor workout, where the soulful, folky “Twelve” gets by on slight variations of a simple mantra (“People wondering how we gonna get by?”).Take a listen (and take advantage of the free download). Record heads: to buy Banana Wine on vinyl, go to Mo Kolours’ Bandcamp . Check it out, after the jump…
