Men Like Us
Johnny Cradle’s highly anticipated LP has been over a decade in the making. The trio are best known for stirring up a melting pot of sounds—interweaving taut percussion, deft turntablism and shimmering electronica. Their self-titled debut fuses this broad range of sounds into an electro-roots masterpiece, combining afro-guitar melodies, analog Moogs and deep bass rhythms—their sound interwoven with socially-conscious lyrics (sung in both English and Xhosa). The result is a postmodern alternative to the current South African musical landscape—showcasing a truly unique sound.
