Ibibio Sound Machine – The Talking Fish (Asem Usem Iyak)

I am on holiday but still had a commute today, and that hurts a bit. But to tell the truth, while I have heard this track a fair bit while commuting, I actually heard it just before i left the house. However, its a monster so it had to go up.

The Talking Fish by Ibibio Sound Machine.

This has been getting hammered on 6 Music and rightly so. It is an awesome slice of African, funk, disco hybrid action. You could imagine it coming out of New York early 80s, but it is a London based band who are about to release their debut album on Subway Records and to be fair its tremendous production let’s you know it is right now. Bring on the album.
