10. Sudan Archives – “Come Meh Way”

As Sudan Archives, Brittney Denise Parks transcends time and space in interlocking grooves. The young, self-taught violinist/vocalist/producer takes her name from Northeast Africa, while she’s releasing her new music through legendarily groove-friendly Los Angeles label Stones Throw — and “Come Meh Way” shows the influence of each of its composite pieces. Parks’ violin work, polyrhythms, and chant-like vocal rounds take on the character of African folk styles, but it’s paired here with loping sub-bass as if taken from a car passing down the road. Her increasingly silvery and beguiling songs leave something just out of reach while simultaneously whispering in your ears and getting your feet moving. Parks’ debut EP as Sudan Archives, which features “Come Meh Way” and five more songs, is available now. –Lior Phillips
