I have rather a lot going on in what laughably passes for real life at the moment, and as a result I have let some things slide.
One of those things is the task is whittling down the pile of CDs that I have bought but not got round to listening to. Having nearly eliminated it at one point, it has now crept up to 20+ again.
So I am enlisting your help. Among the pile are two albums by acts that I had never heard of before but which I thought were worth taking a punt on as two-thirds of a '3 for £1' offer. I have picked a track from each of them at random, without having listened to either, and I am relying on you to let me know if they are any good.
The two albums in question are "Masri Mokkassar: Definitive Works" by Mutamassik, a compilation of tracks recorded between 1996 and 2004, and the self-titled album from 2010 by Drunken Balordi. Now over to you.
"High Alert A'ala Teta" - Mutamassik
"Matilda" - Drunken Balordi
I couldn't find any Mutamassik videos on YouTube, but here is the first Drunken Balordi video that cropped up. Not watched it, obviously.
