  4. Tragavenao Orquesta Afrobeat: Tragavenao Orquesta Afrobeat

The Top 10 chart took July off, so as you might expect, there are a lot of new albums here, ranging from Ethio-jazz to Italian rock and lots of other things in between. One of my personal favorites is the blast of Afrobeat sound emerging from the 10-member Tragavenao Orquesta Afrobeat hailing from Maracaibo, Venezuela. Also the utterly uncategorizable music of Polish group Chłopcy Kontra Basia. Look up the ones you don't know, and enjoy falling down some new musical rabbit holes.

Selections from each of these albums will be featured on the 8 August edition of Spin The Globe -- listen live via www.KAOSradio.org, or catch the show archive at mixcloud.com/SpinTheGlobe
