The Heliocentrics – Wrecking Ball

IMHO The Heliocentrics are the best contemporary band out there!
The sheer musicianship on display is on par with legendary German krautockers Can, while the overall timeless sound oscilates from psych-jazz to krautrock with touches of Sun Ra, Fela Kuti and Mulatu Astatke, with whom they have recorded an album a few years ago.

Over the past years, their collaborations have been responsible for re-exposure of such musical greats as the aforementioned Astatke, Melvin Van Peebles and most recently Orlando Julius.
