I’ve got three reviews up this week at Blurt, all pretty good records.
First Slaraffenland “five guys, from Denmark and Sweden, coax a warm, communal jazz-tinged vibe. They play a near orchestra’s worth of winds, percussion, brass and guitars, all with laid-back skill.”
Then Skeletons with their “dense, syncopated percussion, a body-moving groove, abstract, not-very-linear lyrics, and a deep, compelling strangeness.”
And finally Chris Brokaw, whose review also turned up in the digital almost-like-print edition, but it’s online now. I called it “a brief but wonderful exploration of the acoustic and electric, blues-traditional and experimental byways he and his guitar have travelled.”
