Kenny 10 for 2017

Wanci
Tarawangsawelas
Morphine
Wanci not wanky. Indonesian musicians produced by Rabih Beaini.  The latest offering from Morphine has barely left the turntable since its arrival here. Tarawangsawelas, a duo from Bandung, specialise in a contemporary take on Tarawansa, the sacred music of Sundanese…
Static
Lebenden Toten
Iron Lung
"Lebenden Toten  is one of the greatest punk bands to ever exist and this 12min one song e.p. proves the they can still do no wrong. When we asked them if they wanted to 'get weird' with a single they,  albeit…

Pessimist
Pessimist
Blackest Ever Black
2LP. I dunno, once in a while a producer comes along who just has it. That edge. Not flash, not tricksy –  the opposite of that, in fact, powerfully understated. A killer instinct. And a sound. It’s not about originality so…
