Album Review
Hannah Mae
Reviewed 2002-10-17 
Ramshackle constructed pop with odd rhythms and ultra-effected vocals. Solex main woman Elisabeth Esselink runs a used record store in Amsterdam and gets her samples out of the dollar bin. Sounds like she's raiding the big band, country and 60's pop sections these days - lots of swingy drums, slide guitar and space-age sounds here. This is great shit, quite recommended to fans of Kid Koala-style sample fuckery as well as popsters.

1. skittery beat, woonky bass, harmonica and flute samples
2. clicks and chimes, slinky guitar - an avant-surf band in a clock factory
> 3. organ! and some oh-oh-ohs
> 4. Phil Spectorish - big echoey drums and harmony vox
5. spy horns, rubbery reverb
6. big-band drums and piano, muted vox
7. funk piano and sly horns
> 8. revving guitar
9. brushed cymbal gives it a jazzy air
10. beeps and beats, slide guitar, horns
> 11. has a quasi-ye-ye vavoom to it
12. piano loop, standup bass, horns - a pop song from jazz pieces
13. jerky and repetetive
14. drama! short.
> 15. great swing to it
