So stumbled across this pretty cool thing today; the band Amen Dunes collated a new 7″, with two original, forever uncredited Ethiopian pop songs and then their own covers of each. I have to admit, I prefer the originals. No offense dudes, but there’s some inherent charm in something so unexpected and, probably, once thought lost. Unknown’s ‘Ethio Song I’ is a long gestating piece but one that weaves a rapid tapestry of audial bliss. It’s a very relaxing song that allows the mind to drift off and float away, well worth eight minutes of your time.

You can listen to the rest of the Ethio Covers 7″ here.
