Hi everybody and welcome to another edition of Project Rhythm Seed’s Free Music Friday. Today’s free music comes to us from Toronto, Canada. The band is called North Atlantic Drift and they just recently released their first album, entitled Canvas. We are really pleased to bring you two tracks from the album. The first is called “Waiting In The Afterglow” and the second is “North Atlantic Drift”. Their sound is ambient/electronic and they serve up the perfect soundtrack for a rainy walk through the forest, a hike to the top of a 14’er, a lazy warm afternoon on the beach or anything else your heart desires. We hope you enjoy and we’ll see you next week for more music news for music fans.
Seun Anikulapo Kuti & Egypt 80 return with Seun’s sophomore album, From Africa with Fury: Rise. Produced by Brian Eno, John Reynolds, and Kuti, with additional production by Godwin Logie, and mixed by John Reynolds and Tim Oliver, the mighty new From Africa With Fury: Rise captures Seun and Egypt 80’s extraordinary power, fraught with the scorching rhythms and kinetic funk energy that has earned the band – as ever, under the leadership of alto saxophonist Lekan Animashaun – worldwide acclaim as one of today’s most incendiary live acts. The original album artwork was created by famed Fela Kuti artist, Ghariokwu Lemi.

From Africa With Fury: Rise sees Kuti picking up the mantle as undisputed champion and true prince of the Afrobeat movement, heading up Egypt 80, the extraordinary combo first fronted by his renowned father, Fela.
