Fader magazine just followed up their epic BLK JKS cover/issue release party/sxsw hosting with the mosting by dropping an illmazing 7in vinyl with BLK JKS already classic "Mzabalazo" on the A side and ya bwoy Esau Mwamwaya's "Chilombo" on the flip. Crazy quilt cover art by this dude Ian Hudley.
At shows these days "Mzabalazo" has turned into a free jam that crests in a toyi toyi tidal wave...this here's the original metal version that clocks in at 1:58. Special thanks to sonic mad scientist Gregg Mann for the EQ touch.
Apparently Fader only made 500 of these for the world—but all you have to get one is emailing them with the word "quilts" in the subject line.
UPDATE: Digital version for free HERE.
