[Audio] – The Feed-Back – “Kumalo” (1970)

The Feed-Back – “Kumalo” (1970)

Apparently an alter-ego for Gruppo Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza, the abstract-experimental Italian supergroup that included Ennio Morricone, The Feed-Back tend only to hint at the free-sound tendencies of Il Gruppo.  The biggest difference: The Feed-Back love beats.  And “Kumalo,” though it starts a little slow, is mindblowing: it’s a one-stop supermarket of some of the coolest breakbeats to emerge from the golden age of beats.  Thanks go again to Mutant Sounds for unleashing this rarity from its tragic obscurity.  This should be near the top of any list of “albums that MUST be reissued”.  [The Feed-Back are featured here in a mix at Musicophilia] UPDATE: Continuing to have some difficulties with streaming–let me know if a track doesn’t work for you.
