Like a lot of people i first discovered Nizlopi through the JCB video link. And i fell in love with it! Very shortly after i bought the album and it's been the best thing i did all year! It is packed with brill music and top lyrics that stay in your head. I agree with a previous reviewer that on the first listen you feel like you've missed something but put it on again and you will be hooked! So do these lads a favour and buy their album, you absolutely will not regret it.

I heard about this band from a friend, who had seen them live, and thought I'd like them... and on the strength of his opinion, I decided to buy this CD. OH MY, was I happy with him!
It is a completely superlative album from start to finish, from a duo you can tell believe in what they are doing and love every second. Impossible to categorise, they have carved a new niche in guitar driven/beat poet/hip hop/dance band, (await the genre in record stores soon).
This album, from the exuberant,exciteable "call it up", or "love rage on" which any dance-band outfit would aspire to produce, to the deeply expressive "jcb", which in all honesty moved me to tears, and yet had me smiling at the last...
This album has that sort of quality to draw anybody in, with the songs having the stark edgy honesty of "the streets", and yet the beautiful flowing musicality of an Eva Cassidy record. The poetic and honest vocals manage to speak very deeply, without every losing their playful streak. If only all pop records were this good.
I don't have enough great things to say about this album, only that if these guys don't go far, I'll eat my hat.

I bought this album based purely on hearing the JCB song. Before it arrived i thought that it would turn out to be one of those albums with 3 good songs and the rest would be woeful.
I'm glad to say that my feelings were totally wrong. This album is just 11 really good songs put together in a nice flowing order.
and for good extra's you even get the jcb song video when you play it on a pc.
Defo one of the best albums i've bought this year.

What an amazing medium! There was a link to the JCB video on Christy Moore's site ([...]) and I was hooked! :-)
I think also since dyslexia is prevalent in our family and I've a nephew named Luke who's really suffered with this difficulty, I might have been a bit more touched even by his Dad offering him compassionate leave from school. :-)
But without the music being really good it would have just been three minutes and 'interesting', then onto something else. These guys really deliver a great truly fresh sound, and seem to have a brilliant chemistry between them.
They are fun without being fluff. It's great stuff and always so much fun to find new, talented people to hear. The album is worth every penny, or in this case, every pound. Enjoy!

This music is fantastic! It caters for all tastes. The songs are beautiful, funky, jazzy, hip-hoppy, folky, acoustic(y), (and diffult to pigeon-hole). They're so original. Awesome lyrics with strong, dynamic vocal melodies, based around double bass and guitar, with a variety of other instumental parts including brass, strings, organ, and a 'big yellow digger'! The songs range from jumping dancing tracks to truly heart warming ballads. This is definitely worth a 'risk buy'. Seriously, if you buy one unknown album this year, make this it! You can check out sample songs on the band's website, and their live show (I've seen six now) is incredible: Luke on guitar and vocals and John on double bass and beat box! With lots of dancing and singing, and even some freestyle where they carry their instruments into the crowd! Buy this CD, it will make you happy!

I'll set the scene. I'd gone into to check out their post-Christmas sale. They'd been playing the usual chart stuff, bit of Basement Jaxx, blah blah. Then this new cd started. It was a man who sounded like a jazz-funk Mike Skinner from the Streets singing "well well well well, fine story to tell". I thought to myself "that's quite cool, if a little cocky", and kept a curious ear out as I browsed. The second song was nothing like the first, but it was just as immediate. And then the third, which was even better. By this time, I'd placed the voice and realised who it was, because I'd seen the JCB song on Top of the Pops Christmas Day, and found it really touching. This was such a rare treat, an album I was hearing for the first time, and each new song that came on was as good as, or even better than, the last.
Reader, I bought it.
And let me tell you, it is absolutely life-affirming. Warm, hopeful, heartfelt, poignant, what more do you need? If you can imagine the emotive acoustic folk of Tracy Chapman mixed with the chirpy laddish vocals of the Streets (buy it and see what I mean), with a little bit of Van Morrison and Dave Matthews Band thrown in, that's roughly what this sounds like.
If you're human at all, you'll smile, your eyes will get all misty and you'll resolve to win that love (back), call that old friend, revisit that place you loved as a kid.
Beautiful. Own this, and the world's a happier place.
