Fair Ohs - Salt Flats

Released on flexi-postcard, perhaps the ultimate in that it's a format incorporating two forms of dead media, Fair Ohs' explorations into African hi-life - Eritrean Guayla, it's specified here - refracted both through bubbling indie disco and basement lo-fi take a turn for the psychedelic, slowed down, letting more air bubbles develop between the cracks and somehow even more taut than before. Alright, because of that lack of freneticism it does sound a little more like Vampire Weekend (Contra specifically) than hotwired direct from source, but not in such a way they could be accused of late-on copyage.
