“There has been a compelling trajectory at work since J.J. Whitefield's Karl Hector & the Malcouns issued 2008's Sahara Swing. It articulated Whitefield's lifelong love of sounds from the African Diaspora that include Ebo Taylor's slippery guitar funk, Zamrock, Malian blues, and disco-fied Nigerian Afrobeat. Six years later, the Malcouns dug deeper on Unstraight Ahead by exploring the Ethio jazz of Mulatu Astatke, Hailu Mergia, and Getatchew Mekuria, soldered onto the German band's love of Krautrock and trancey psychedelia as exemplified by countrymen Can, Agitation Free, and Tomorrow's Gift. Non Ex Orbis, issued more than a decade after their debut, finds the band traveling further afield without losing their way. This eight-track set engages the experimentalism of krautrock as it meets classic German prog influences such as Amon Düül, Popol Vuh, and Embryo, and dark, trippy analog funk. Woven in are an eclectic mix of trance, analog synth, interlocking Afrobeat grooves, and ghostly, dark mercurial psych.” – All Music
