1977 V.3.
Hear it
Actually from 1984 (or late 1983), which is Ethiopian 1977. The great Oromo vocalist’s third album features a bare trio of acoustic guitar, minimal percussion and her beautiful voice on a set of fast songs that Awesome Tapes characterizes as tense. Not sure they’re tense, but there’s no lagging here.

Swan Lake.

It’s a post-modern employ of the record as storytelling medium, wherein Nate has a song on side one that’s a first-person narration of the Tonya Harding story transplanted to the ballet world and with a Faust-like twist of demonic dealings, complete with death-metal parts where the demons speak, and then the flip gives you audio of the actual events, with Tchaikovsky’s ballet overdubbed with the sounds of a descent to hell. So awesome. The cover, too, so good!
