El Michels Affair - Unathi / Zaharila

description

El Michels Affair returns with a new 45 that is simultaneously a new direction and the signature sound he is
known for. This time EMA dips their toes into the world of Bollywood Funk and recruits Piya Malik of 79.5
for vocal duties. He has crafted yet another two sider of heavy duty shit. It also comes in a gorgeous picture
sleeve courtesy of Chicago’s Deadly Prey gallery.
From the start of side A, Unathi reels the listener in and keeps them through a journey of psychedelic
arrangements, unexpected detours, and relentless rhythm. El Michels again showing the performance and
production prowess that has spawned not only bands, but also some independent record labels. Lyrically,
Unathi is a song about progress, a vociferous call to arms urging people to come together and work
collectively to achieve it.
Side B, Zaharila, is cinematic, dynamic, and an almost visual number as if it were the score to a film that’s
never existed. Bent guitar notes and blaring horn stabs ride the peaks and valleys of this epic tale about
poisonous whispers that destroy a beautiful love affair. Starting slow and calm with Piya’s ethereal melodies
floating atop, the song eventually becomes poisoned, panicked, and frantic by the final note.
