The Zimbabwean hip-hop project Will-Broad revealed the latest track on the 10th.
Zim Plan is of different articulation to music previously featured, with a more flowing and mellowed construction that, conversely, is of more political statement. Reflecting as it does of plans to reintroduce the Zimbabwean Dollar which was withdrawn at the time of hyper-inflation having riven society in to far reaching shortages and abject poverty.
Whilst very specifically focused on Zimbabwean societal structures, the narrative of a system failing the many whilst enriching the few has a global resonance.

The Medicine Dolls, a new wave trio from South Africa, released the LP Lost Love Lullabies on the 2nd.
The Medicine Dolls
A group of musicians who evidently enjoy creating and performing music with new songs frequently being revealed along with regular touring schedules and one off gigs in South Africa, if justice be served they will find slots on the international stage opening up for them very soon as theirs is music that travels globally.
Lost Love Lullabies introduces some stronger melody to various tracks, whilst loosing none of the exuberant joie de vivre that is their hallmark sound. Each time I pick up on a song of theirs I, like an excited puppy playing with a squeaky toy, find myself hurtling around the room in yelps of delight.
From the six track album – the second – Sick Of Anesthetic.

With only one release around – Ahwar – which came out earlier in the month and is available on bandcamp, though a highly experienced musician. Nadah El Shazly is able to challenge both local societal norms whilst equally throwing down the gauntlet to a wider global audience to appreciate different roots of music and if one is minded to pick up the glove the listener will find themselves engrossed in a roughly thirty eight minutes, six song, collaborative début LP in which all sense of time dissipates.
By way of an introduction the second song and also the longest, extending to a tad under eight and two thirds minutes – Barzakh (Limen).

The South African newwave trio The Medicine Dolls have featured regularly since first appearing last year.
The Medicine Dolls – Kiss Kiss Kill Me
The newest track, which surfaced this week, Kiss Kiss Kill Me exemplifies why their music always resonates with me as the carefree abandon of uncomplicated guitar, throbbing bass, congealed vocal and flailing drum hurtles around the room merely asking of the listener to join in on the dance floor in any angulation of limbs preferred and passing no thought to it, merely delight that the audience is taking part in the party.
Turn up the volume, clear floor-space, hit play and thresh with the music that pours through the ears.
