A super-group of sorts led by clarinetist, saxophonist and composer Shabaka Hutchings with Oren Marshall on tuba and both Tom Skinner and Seb Rochford on drums, Sons of Kemet release their stunning debut album Burn. It's partly the deployment of two drummers - and two powerhouse drummers at that - gives Sons of Kemet their compelling and infectious sound. Skinner and Rochford's visceral exchange of rhythmic ideas is an unforgettable, highly danceable experience. Throw into this one of the great wild cards of contemporary British music, Oren Marshall on tuba, and you have a wonderfully unorthodox configuration. A curiously addictive album that manages to appeal to both heart and mind, there is little to compare it with. Black 180g vinyl LP + DL code.
