New The Very Best: “Kondaine”

Nothing says summer and fun like the Very Best, the Malawian singer Esau Mwamwaya’s collaboration with London production duo Radioclit, so get psyched because dudes are back just in time for summer with a brand new hands-in-the-air worldbeat single, “Kondaine,” which features the Nigerian-born London singer Seye as well. The track comes with a video, shot among the Turkana tribe in northern Kenya, in which the band and Seye drink the song’s namesake, a magic potion, with disastrous / hilarious / gross results. You might want to skip the video if you’re squeamish, but definitely give the song a few listens and a spot on your summer jam playlist.

The Very Best's new album, MTMTMK is out July 17th.

Plus, hear none other than Fucked Up’s 17-minute Italian opera.

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
