Magnolia / Lotus
Hearing the Swedish outfit Sven Wunder for the first time is as refreshing as an ice-cold Limoncello after an Italian meal. One of those bands that feel instantly familiar like an old friend, yet simultaneously fresh and new. Straight away Mr Bongo fell in love with their sound and knew they had to work with them. Mr Bongo have selected two tracks of Turkish inspired funk goodness taken from their already cult-classic 2019 album, Doğu Çiçekleri (Eastern Flowers). Both instrumentals, Tulip and Magnolia could easily have come from a lost soundtrack to a psychedelic movie. With their beautiful, yet raw aesthetic, they will enthrall funk, B-Boy / Girls, and psychedelia fans alike.
