“Overall Sabolai Radio 2019 was a much need gust of fresh air in the scene that latches onto sameness in sound. With a diverse and engaging set of artists, ACCRA [dot] ALT was able to remind us of the psychedelic spectrum of sonic energy that float through this country.” Check out our recap post on @sabolairadio 2018.

Very excited to bring to you our review of the latest album by South African indie-pop trio, @beatenberg_band. “12 Views of Beatenberg is an intricately layered record, that allows for an intimate consumption of nuanced and expansive perspectives about life and love and loss. The album illustrates a welcome growth in the bands process where rhythm and melody are crafted to feel similar and intimate despite coming from divergent sources”.
