Listen, I’m the first to admit that I’ve never got Shit and Shite, the now long running noise project from Craig Clouse. This really is not for the want of trying because I know people whose music taste I trust impeccably who rave about every release. Each time I dutifully listen and just don’t see what they are on about. I’ve never found anything that I can grab on to… nothing that has given me a way in.
That is, until now. Maybe I’ve changed, maybe Shit and Shine has moved towards me… it doesn’t really matter how or why but from the first listen of this album I get it, or at least my version of ‘it’. That’s not to say that this has been easy, but there was enough here for me to get a foothold into and explore from there.
So fans of Shit and Shine are going to have to excuse my ignorance when writing about this album, but really you know you’re going to love it. This is more aimed at those who, like me, have always found Shit and Shine to be difficult to the point of impenetrability. Firstly, you are not alone. Secondly, this might be the entrance to the cave that you have been looking for...

Rhythms: there is no more apt title for this afrobeat bomb with fusion flavors and gospel groove. The unknown origins of its author make this project even more intriguing. In fact, Goatman knows only his name, his country, Sweden and his membership in the Goat collective, which is also shrouded in mystery. This debut owes much to the great figures of Afro culture, from Fela Kuti to Sun Ra, thus contributing to the rebirth of the genre in the West. Jaam Ak Salam opens the dances in the true sense of the word with its festive and pressing rhythms. Oud's solo is a one-way trip to tribal and cosmic atmospheres. With Hum Bebass Nahinback to western music, rock '70s and guitar solos so dear to good old Hendrix. The electronic percussions of Limelight jar with the rest of the album, thus lowering the level of this publication. Carry the Load thinks to raise the bar again: his spiritual jazz, the choral voice of the Swedish Amanda Werne and the sax and flute solos make this magic track, almost possessed by the spirit of free jazz. The voice of the Senegalese artist Seydi Mandoza is the protagonist of Aduna , the penultimate track of the album, which becomes more electronic through the use of monophonic synths, then returning to the wind and the free and wild guitar. A base of drone music characterizes the last piece,Baaneexu , which with its melancholic atmosphere, is positioned in complete antithesis with the opening song.
What the listener is assisting is a real journey that shows the different facets of African culture. A hymn to timeless love and peace. An anthem we damn need. 8/10
