7digital What we said: First touted for success back in 2009 alongside fellow Northerners Everything Everything and Dutch Uncles, Egyptian Hip Hop have been a little slower off the mark at releasing records than their art-pop peers. And while we’d have liked to have heard their debut sooner, we’re relieved to report that this feast of left-of-centre, psych-pop was definitely worth waiting for. Produced by Wild Beasts’ right-hand man Richard Formby, Good Don’t Sleep pays homage to Talking Heads-esque funk and to the twitching, angular rhythms of Foals, while the jazz-tinged ‘Snake Lane West’ suggests that singer Alex Hewett picked up more than just souvenirs on his recent European tour with Connan Mockasin.
