She Regrets 02:55


Digital single accompanying the 2019 vinyl reissue of Xoliso's debut album Shingwanyana, a hen’s tooth Afrocentric psych outlier from 1974 via the northeast fringe of Pretoria, South Africa.

Building on the influence of acclaimed avant-gardists Malombo, Xoliso pushed Mamelodi's nascent Afro-jazz sound into the domain of electric tribal rock and laced it with vocal chants, brittle fuzz, trippy flute and organ psychedelics. File between Assegai and Batsumi and in reach of the Beaters and Kabasa.

Fully licensed and released in collaboration with the band, this edition sees the album back in print for the first time in 45 years. Carefully restored from analog master tapes with beautifully reproduced original artwork.
