You'll have to forgive your host's voice this month after a mystery malady has struck Thomas in the throat and sinuses and sense of smell, but there's still plenty of power in the hour this May with new things from Party Dozen, The Stroppies, Phelimuncasi, Vision 3D and more.
It gets a bit wonky and slightly wild, be warned. Not to mention (oh, I'm just about to) a nod to the recently departed Chris Bailey of The Saints, true godfather to down-under punks.

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Phelimuncasi formed in 2012 in the Mlaszi township of Durban, South Africa as a trio of Gqom vocalists, Khera, Malathon, and Makan Nana. Their music is imbued with a storytelling tradition that harks back to southern African toyi-toyi, a powerful dance of protest accompanied by rhythmic singing that was used during anti-apartheid demonstration to intimidate police and security forces.
Driven by the urge to create music that “enchants or poisons the audience,” the trio partnered with producers DJ MP3 and DJ Scoturn.

What establishes Phelimuncasi as notable artist of contemporary South African music is Phelimuncasi’s spontaneous, mantra-like chanting, vibrant Isizulu spoken word, and infectious statements that intensify a sense of revelation and liberation.
