The Good Ones’ Kigali Y’ Izahabu Out Now

DOC044

It’s a really special day for us here in the Dead Oceans camp. We’re honored and humbled to release The Good Ones’ Kigali Y’ Izahabu. We’ve talked about the three Rwandan genocide survivors behind the music and the world traveling producer whose lucky encounter resulted in its recording, but at its core, it’s a record of simple acoustic love songs with undeniable melodies. And somedays, that’s all it needs to be. Its many champions would agree:

“This is an important recording not only for its stellar musical quality, but for its humanity as well” — AllMusic

“The trio’s harmonies are the key, with the voices dovetailing majestically on undulating delights like ‘Eudia’ and ‘Amargorwa y’ Abagabo.'” — Uncut, 4/5 Stars

“Unpolished and unrefined two-part harmonies rarely come more moving than on these 12 songs…These guys have been through wars and now survive on pennies — the fact that they want to sit and sing love songs for us should be enough, but the raw, emotional results are undeniably impressive.” — MOJO, 4/5 Stars

“The Good Ones’ three-man harmonies are about as slack and welcoming as any porch-recorded music you’ve heard. “Sara”…is undeniable.” — FADER
