Cosmic Analog Ensemble

Lebanese producer Charif Megarbane has a lot of different musical aliases, including Heroes & Villains and Trans Mara Express. Under his moniker Cosmic Analog Ensemble, he has released a number of albums, the latest being Les Sourdes Oreilles which was in partnership with a French label titled My Bags. It is a seamlessly arranged album composed with live instruments, evoking a distinct 1970’s vibe. It is heavy in groovy funk and soul, with a deliciously haunting side. It is easy to imagine the album as a soundtrack to a cult spy movie of the era: pair with lava lamps, cocktails, fishnet and leopard print.
