Scandinavian producer Peder Mannerfelt's 2014 debut, Lines Describing Circles, may have been impressive, but its spooky mixture of drone, ambient, and experimental electronics lacked focus. The same can't be said of The Swedish Congo Record, which sticks religiously to a surprising - but rather brilliant - concept. It's apparently an all synthesizer re-make of an obscure 1950s album of recordings of indigenous tribal music from the (then) Belgian Congo. With synthesizer notes being used to create both rhythm and melody, Mannerfelt's concoctions are bizarre but brilliant, and undoubtedly as intense and rhythmically dense as the album that inspired it.
