God Bless South African Rock


To continue the series of music-related posts, feast your ears on Blk Jks, a South African rock band that hails from the chaotic metropolis that is Johannesburg. I generally love South African music across genres because it all seems to be united by intensely deep, pulsing, contagious rhythms that always make me realize when I hear it, “That’s South African music.” Music that spills from the soul. Their sound is this baffling mix of South African traditional hymns, pure indie rock and township kwaito. In other words, it can result in some musical magic. (The Rolling Stone loves them, too). See what I mean with “Molalatladi” below.
