MUNGO PARK (UNITED) | Le Podium
This Mungo Park’s ‘Le Podium’ installment for Third Side Records. A ‘Le Podium’ installment basically consists of French bands putting together four previously unreleased tracks. This particular EP consists of two songs, “Pilgrim” and “Roller Coaster”, and a remix of each. Listen to “Pilgrim (Jackson And His Computer Band Remix)” below. It’s a wildly exploratory track with broken beats, tribal percussion, a French voice sample, and exotic electronics. Mungo Park (United) are a quintet from France and Cameroon. The album is available to stream at bandcamp or via Third Side Records. The song is a free download. You can also purchase the record on heavy colored vinyl. There are only 150 copies available, so you’ll need to be quick. The band says the name comes from the famous English explorer, and also hero of author TC Boyle’s novel “Water Music”. — David D.
