Ibibio Sound Machine at No. 1 in Piccadilly Records Mid-Term Review 2014
Piccadilly Records Mid-Term Review see’s the popular indie store take stock of all the albums they’ve loved by the halfway stage this year. Everyone who works at the store handed in their own top 20s, which then got compiled into the top 50 which you can check out over on their website.
Proper are delighted to see the Soundway Records debut release from Ibibio Sound Machine taking the No.1 spot on this list with Todd Terje also ranking highly with his album ‘It’s Album Time’ at No.22.
Ibibio Sound Machine’s self-titled debut arrived like a bolt from the blue back in March, meshing afro-funk with electro-disco, psychedelia and soul into one energised blast of LIFE. Think Goat and William Onyeabor jamming together – yep, that good!
