LP version. Includes download code. Akuphone presents Doomsday Survival Kit, Praed's fourth album. This is the ultimate kit to prepare calmly for the sixth extinction! The Lebanese duo delivers a raging interpretation of the chaabi -- popular Arabic music -- using synthesizers, drum machines, samples, and other devices. The result is hypnotic and psychedelic, on the verge of trance. The clarinet of Paed Conca and the soaring lyricism of Raed Yassin sound like distant calls for help emerging from a world that is falling apart and slipping away. The record itself is enhanced by its sleeve -- designed by the Lebanese artist Raphaƫlle Macaron -- printed in five Pantone colors making it as explosive as the music. Praed is Paed Conca (clarinet, electric bass, electronics, samples) and Raed Yassin (synthesizers, vocals, electronics, samples).
