Like Animal Collective? Of course you do, who doesn't love those freak psych-pop geniuses these days? One think about Animal Collective is they have never been very forward with stating who they are influenced by. Yet they did state once in an interview that one living influence of theirs is Sidi Toure, a well respected singer/guitarist from Mali. Since their shout out, Mr. Toure has slowly been gaining a cult following here in the states. La Blogotheque made a great video of him as well. In the beginning of the year Toure released Sahel Folk that is available here in the states. Check out "Bon Koum" below. Africa!
