On the show this time, it’s the inclusionary joy of London’s Ibibio Sound Machine. Their latest album, Electricity, is available on Merge Records.

This eight-member multicultural band put out their latest album Electricity in March of 2022. Blending elements of West African funk and electro-post-punk, it was produced by saxophonist Max Grunhard in collaboration with Hot Chip. The record highlights singer Eno Williams' adamant vocals, and expands the band's sound — it’s all bangers, ready for the club. This performance features the first four songs from the album, though in a different order.

Recorded 09/29/2022.

  1. Electricity
  2. 17 - 18 - 19
  3. Protection from Evil
  4. All That You Want
