Afropunk writes that the new LP from Rwanda’s The Good Ones is “honest and unflinching, yet hopeful.” Titled Rwanda, You Should Be Loved, the LP was recorded in Africa and features contributions from Wilco’s Nels Cline, TV On The Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe, Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker, My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields, and Fugazi’s Joe Lally. As Afropunk describes it, the “music is stripped down, using largely acoustic and often homemade instruments, but intensely emotional.” Read all about it here.
The Good Ones were in a tie for most-added record at NACC World last week and also debuted on the World chart. We’re looking for more debuts this week so we can see The Good Ones moving on up. Rwanda, You Should Be Loved is also going for Radio 200 and Folk spins and chart numbers. Thanks to all of the stations that are already on board.
