Album Review
Reviewed 2005-10-19
Trip-hop, infused with psychadelica, also with some folk, Gospel and jazz, all contributing to a very interesting and coherent music. A collection of 3 Eps. Some tracks are bouncy and some are more trippy. In addition to the Electronica and trip-hop sensibility there is an acoustic guitar and lead male singer with a soft voice. Most tracks are short, all of them are good.
1. Psych folk moving toward electronica.
*2. Bouncy loopy electronica. Short track
3. Acoustic guitar and soft male voice opening. Bouncy psych folk electronica.
4. Short loopy fragment with tambourine.
5. Short psych folk trippy piece.
6. Trip hop/psych piece with slow but heavy beat.
7. Opens with horns, goes into a trippy slow piece with soft male vox.
*8. A funky quirky track with some psych sensibility. Reminiscent of Beck.
9. Short fast piece with good beats.
10. Trip hop with Gospel at the end.
*11. Funky, good beat. Soft male vox. A bit jangly at places, a bit progressive at others.
*12. Opens with wind bells and a grunting horn. Cool beat later.
*13. Mid tempo, congo beat and female voices open for a mid tempo percussion with lead singer.
14. Cool jazzy beat and sax.
15. Trippy and heavy.
