I’m finally digging into Spoek’s debut album Father Creeper.  There’s a lot to like here on this largely new electro/African soundscape he calls township tech.  Here’s a song that really grabbed me on the first pass through the album.  I particularly like the grindy guitar (d)evolution at about the 3-minute mark.  Would be kinda cool to see Spoek on tour with, say, J*Davey.  You get the idea, right?


NYC, you can catch Spoek on Thursday, March 22 at SOB’s.  Showtime’s at 9pm
