Sunzoo Manley "To All Our Escapes"***
The one man orchestra Piet Goddaer (Ozark Henry) laid a foundation of beats, bass
and synths, on which Frank Deruytter on sax and Stephane Galland on drums could
go wild. A delightful CD is the result of this cooperation.
Star Club West "This is Howie"
Debut-cd of this band from Antwerp around singer/guitarist/songwriter Nico Jacobs,
with 8 guitarsongs that hesitate between intimistic and fuzz, between melody &
Stonedigger "A collection of Headphone
Songs" Second CD from this sympathetic lot from Limburg, after a
few major changes in the line-up, and a few minor changes in the musical direction.
Nice guitar-rock with multiple vocals, and a miserable cover on top.
Sarah "Starlite Diner" For
her second Cd, EMI teamed up Sarah Decoster to the producer of Anouk, to a number
of former heavy-metal musicians, and to a few uninspired songwriters. There's
better company than that, and the result is what you might expect.
Sharko "Meeuws" David Bartholomé,
aka Sharko, teamed up with Thomas van Cottem & Teuk Henri for his 2nd full
cd. The result is less extreme than the first one and could be described as personal
rock with an eye for detail.
Sharko "Feuded" Almost solo-project
of David Bartholomé (with Rudy Coclet) who does insanely beautiful things
in his quest not to become insane.
Shades - Music from the original soundtrack
With songs by Hooverphonic, Soul Sucker, DAAU, Soulwax, Groove Cartel, Troubleman,
The Seatsniffers ... and an instrumental score by Alex Callier in an atmosphere
between David Lynch & Quentin Tarantino.
Soul Sucker "Is Everything"
2nd CD of this band from Antwerp that mixes a tuba, a swamp guitar, honky-tonk
piano and funky drums. Swinging & shaking.
Soon "Signal to Noise"
Soon: Roaring, explosive guitars dipped in a melodic structure, a careful mix
of fragile and solid fragments to prepare a powerful sound, a spoonful of frenzy
and a fair amount of passion and drive. Spiced up with some Fugazi, Kashmir, Reiziger,
Sonic Youth, ...
