Album reviews (cd-presentation, review, overview of press-reactions,
Bar8 "Dwarfish Spectacles"
Debut-CD of Bart-Amand (once finalist of the Rock Rally with the band 801KD Concept)
& his Bar8, with a varied company of musicians and songs, ranging rom fanfare
to minimalism, from instrumental to John Cale-like ballads.
Bruno "Down The Road"***
Second solo-cd of this ex-Pink Flowers frontman Bruno Deneckere. It
has become a very pure country-album, which I compare to Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska
or the sobre side of Green on Red. The bio names Townes van Zandt, Steve Earle,
and that is also not far from the truth.
The Blues-O-Matics "Rockillero"
Second CD of this pleasant company that mixes all kinds of roots music and rockabilly
with firm injections of cajun, tex-mex and other spicy stuff.
de Bossen "Feel the Beating ..."
Second CD of this mostly female band from Antwerp, that is - as the cover suggests
- a lot less merry and sex-obsessed than their "The Girl Collection"
of two years ago.
Betty Goes Green "Dreamers &
Lovers" 6th cd of this band led by the Luc Crabbe (a blend of Iggy
Pop & Bowie, as far as his voice goes), and yet another fine example of songwriting
of sound & solid rock songs.
Buscemi "Our Girl in Havana"*** Second album of producer Dirk Swartenbroekx,
who mixes various kinds of Brazilian and Latin-American moods & rhythms into
a melting pot of house & drum'n'bass & beats.
