Jeff's Best of 2021 - #8: El Michels Affair - Yeti Season

You know an album is good when it sets off a new musical obsession. Yeti Season did exactly that.

Leon Michels, lead songwriter and producer of El Michels Affair, had prior stints with Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings and members of Wu-Tang, and now produces and backs other acts along with new material. This third album of originals feels like it should soundtrack a movie in the 1970s that hasn't aged as well as you remember, and is just as reliant on its specific and intentional production choices as it is on the actual quality of the songs.

I don't know how I found them, but El Michels Affair led me to Altun Gun, to TEKE::TEKE, to a whole world of retro/psych music I didn't know existed. Yeti Season is the best of the bunch, but I appreciate this for turning me onto such great music just as much as I appreciate it for the musical revelation it is.

  1. Hello guys, I just want to share my joyful experience about HACK VANISH CREDIT SPECIALIST. Before the coronavirus pandemic, I had criminal Judgments, few evictions, and late payment which negatively impacted my credit score down to 487 and left me in difficult financial situation, as a single mum of 3, I needed a loan to keep the family running after I lost my husband as a result of COVID-19, all hope were lost, until Mrs. Olivia referred me to HACK VANISH, a credit genius who was very helpful in fixing my credit 6 days after I reached out to him via Email: hackvanish (At) gmail (Dot) com and Phone: +1(747) 293-8514, throughout the process, I felt so involved because an open line of communication was maintained till I got my FICO score restored to 796, currently my loan application has been approved. If you need to hire a credible hacker, HACK VANISH is highly recommended.
