Eli & Alex Wondergem — Buying Our Freedom
Eli & Alex Wondergem have lived in a lot of places but call Ghana their home. Their too-short (16 mins) EP offers a teasing glimpse of artists who bring some serious talent to bear. The “feel” of this record conveys freedom, awareness (personal and political), heart and hope (sans any trace of naïveté ). They squeeze a lot of sound into these six tracks — from sunshine soul to dank Afro beats (think Beat Konducta) to serious Afrobeat — and it’s all tied together by a deep understanding of “swing.” Looking forward to more from the Wondergems.
