PIERRE KWENDERS – “SEXUS PLEXUS NEXUS”
MAKANDA AT THE END OF SPACE, THE BEGINNING OF TIME (2017)
July 7, 2018
Aaaaahhh… what an easy breezy tune… Pierre Kwenders’ “Sexus Plexus Nexus” is the perfect soundtrack for a sunny summer day, and doesn’t need more introduction than this. Just listen. You won’t be disappointed.
This is Afro-Canadian Pierre Kwenders’ second album. His single Sexus Plexus Nexus dropped June 20. He’s often collaborated with DJ Windows98 (Win Butler) & recently he supported Arcade Fire at their annual fundraiser for the charity Kanpe. His first album, out in 2014, earned a JUNO nod & was Polaris long listed. His first single Mardi Gras is a fan-favorite at shows.
