Chicago experimentalists hit the disco

Something for you to get fresh at the weekend to…

volcano! hail from Chicago, and the trio (Mark Cartwright, Sam Scanton and Aaron With) are best-known for their rather out-there alt-rock arrangements; their two albums to date, ‘Beautiful Seizure’ and this year’s ‘Paperwork’ (both via the Leaf Label), are riddled with experimentation and bursting with more than the odd WTF moment.

But courtesy of something or someone called ‘XTZR_KX’ – us neither – their ‘Africa Just Wants To Have Fun’ track has been turned into a dancefloor monster. Get the original video into your eyes below, before downloading the remix for free.
