Premiere: Oy's Ghanaian Electronic 'Kokokyinaka' [Album Stream]

Stream Ghanaian experimental electronica songstress Oy's sophomore album "Kokokyinaka" in in its entirety.

Ghanaian/Swiss songstress Joy Frempong aka Oy crafts catchy, yet experimental, African-inflected electronica packed with personal stories, proverbs and a deep crate of unusual samples from everyday life in the continent — for example, she utilizes sounds like the clank of her mother's washing machine in Ghana and the shriek of knives being sharpened in an Ouagadougou market. Stream her outstanding sophomore album Kokokyinaka in full below. Pre-order the album now on iTunes, dropping April 11 via Creaked Records, and read more about Oy in our in-depth feature on the singer.
