5.0 out of 5 stars Memorable, 6 Dec. 2012

This review is from: World Music (Audio CD)
When a band calls their first release World Music you expect African rhythms and quite a bit of navel gazing. What you don't expect is an album that takes the idea of World Music and actually travels the globe. From the Indian feeling Run To Your Mama to the Middle Eastern Goatman there is a lot of diversity here with a large guitar sound backed by drums and instruments from all over the globe. The fact that they come from Sweden is all the more surprising.

Golden Dawn is a great example of a funk work out crossed with hypnotic percussion - it sounds like it was made yesterday and in the seventies at the same time. Run To Your Mama has an Indian vibe and yet it has a guitar that crunches like glam rock - yes this really does mix influences and pulls that trick off extremely well. It has a toe tapping quality that will lead you to the dancefloor if its ever put on in that environment.

Other psychedelic influenced albums have come out this year, Tame Impala are getting a lot of airplay as an example. However, this is a stronger set of tracks and is really worth checking out. One of the albums of 2012
