Mubla Na Thguob Great album. Very experimental and at times progressive while never losing track of the traditional African thread that runs throughout. My only minor quibble is the song "Jocksauce" which is lyrically confusing to me as I'm not sure from whose point of view it is being sung. Even so, I would give this an 8 out of 10. Favorite track: the mourning after.

Julian Raxworthy Just moved to South Africa from Oz and read about these guys in the Mail & Guardian: the first local band I have bought and they are ace. Even with problems, there is lots of hope and sophistication in the new South Africa - these guys show the fusions that excite me about being here! Favorite track: jocksauce.

Verse Soul agents on a mission to save the planet No longer lost in the doubt of it being an illusion We’re moments of evolution in motion We’ve come to terms with the soul never eroding. Pink people a night in Parktown Mansions Skin lightening just cause it’s in fashion Pink people happy brown things do happen Believe in this revolution and not this party Chorus Party – Not this Party – Party – Party – Party Not this party – party – party party party Not this party – party – party – party Not this party party party party Verse I’m eating sushi in paradise with whoever And loaded cause it don’t last forever The chivalry of whisky on her lips She’s lost in the cars it’s the sound of her hips Brown people a night in Diepkloof Mansions You’re hanging with him cause he’s in fashion Brown people happy pink things do happen Believe in this evolution and not this party Chorus Party – Not this Party – Party – Party – Party Not this party – party – party party party Not this party – party – party – party Not this party party party party Bridge What happened after the accident My whole concept of rhythm shifted I’m over the anger of not being on their hitlist What happened after the accident My whole rhythm of concept shifted She’s in the bedroom with him and there’s no party Chorus There’s no party – Party – party – Party Party – party party party There’s no party party party party There’s no party party party party PARTY PARTY PARTY
