A&E - OI! (CD)

""SCRATCH THE HULU" is imbued with the absurd humour which has become one of the main stylistic devices of this posse. All the tracks on the album are complete and finished, yet it seems as if Baudoux wants them to retain a sketch-like quality. "SCRATCH THE HULU" is a ...

LITHOPS - QUERIES (CD)

"Immediately the first track, "Kahn", carefully opens the door to an album that surprises with subtly bouncing electronica. On Queries you'll find intuitive rhythms with immediate kick, as well as narrative comical bleeps and clonks. This comes as quite a surprise, ...
