Better Change Your Mind

Slide over to Banana Nutrament and download the mp3 by William Onyeabor called Better Change Your Mind. Woooah! Takes a minute or two to download -- but the result is eight minutes and twenty-four seconds of hard-to-sit-still music pleasure.
Turns out Better Change Your Mind is one track from a compilation called Love's A Real Thing: The Funky Fuzzy Sounds of West Africa. Based on the Onyeabor track, funky and gloriously fuzzy it is too. The compilation is on David Byrne's record label Luaka Bop. Still need convincing? Pitchfork review. Having read it, my VISA card started twitching in my wallet. Thanks, William O! Thanks, David B! Thanks, Banana N!
