THE VERY BEST “Warm Heart of Africa” (2009)

Esau Mwamwaya’s rework of “Paper Planes” was far and away the best of the thousands of versions churned out in Fall ’07, and I’ve been digging other cuts for some time now.

The Very Best is his collaboration with the similarly excellent Radioclit; an album is dropping in September. A small taste of what’s to come popped up on the Net this morning. The good news is that it rules (the presence of what’shisname from Vampire Weekend is not a fatal flaw). Excellent choice in source material too…

UPDATE: I’m really digging the Architecture in Helsinki remix just posted on Discobelle.
