ZITA SWOON GROUP "Wait For Me"
Wonderfully combining raw acoustic blues with traditional West African music, this album is an encounter between Zita Swoon Group (the Antwerp collective formed by Deus co-founder Stef Kamil Carlens) and Burkina Faso musicians Awa Démé & Mamadou Diabaté Kibié. Wait For Me is a unique listening experience, which weaves African and "northern" styles styles within an almost pop-like song format with seemingly effortless ease…
BALKAN BEAT BOX "Give"
BBB deliver their strongest album to date, a collection of slamming tracks which expands the borders of their trademark Mediterranean-inflected sound, to incorporate an energy and roughness reminiscent of certain new strains of African, Asian and South American electronic club music. The socio/politically-charged lyrical content is not unconnected to the current protest movements across the globe (as exemplified by the first video off the album, "Political Fuck", already a sensation on the net).
LONELY DRIFTER KAREN “Poles”
A resolutely pop album which shatters many preconceived notions of LDK's music. The colours have morphed: analog electronics, Asiatic arpeggios, sliding bass-synths, sinuous guitar riffs and funky grooves abound, while Tanja Frinta's voice is wilder and more vibrant than it ever was. Dreamy, poetic, and slightly surreal, overflowing with those lush arrangements and irresistible melodies which have become the band's trademark.
