The Very Best - SUPER MOM (mixtape)
Honestly, every day is "Mother's Day." But over the weekend, in celebration of the widely-recognized holiday, The Very Best let loose a batch of new songs. Consisting of key components Malawi (Africa)'s own Esau Mwamwaya and Radioclit, the fun-loving trio have previously released a self-titled mixtape and debut album, Warm Heart of Africa... As well as a handful of interesting remixes/covers - Vampire Weekend, M.I.A., Yeasayer, Florence + The Machine/The xx, Architecture In Helsinki, etc.
SUPER MOM works in a similar fashion: Whereas, it includes The Very Best's takes on popular tracks by artists as diverse as Cee-Lo, Kanye & Pusha T, [2pac,] Billy Idol, LCD Soundsystem, and Kate Bush. Also housing noticeable collaborators: Rusko, BLK JKS, Marina Gasolina (Bonde do Role), M.I.A.-affiliate Afrikan Boy, and Antibalas. In addition to the re-tweaks, 2 newly-penned Very Best tracks ("SUPER MOM" and "Ndekha") were thrown on as well.
