Latitudes: The International Music You Must Hear In August

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

This month's offerings for what you have to hear from Asia, Africa and Europe are a mixed plate. There are some new summer songs to catch up on, including a fabulous party tune, a very pretty number used in one of this summer's most talked about films and a video I just can't stop watching from an emerging duo. I'm also playing a quick round of "Where Are They Now?" with two acts I've been following for a while; both use fantastical, psychedelic sounds, but to very different ends.
