TBR: 5th August
Apparently from Antarctica, this tekno-punk outfit offer us two brand new sonic happenings. Said to be a redefining moment in the Jujuka journey, this exploration of sound wants to 'wake the sleeper'. Perhaps some of us still don't know why dancing is good for you and so this record is no-doubt perfect for winning them over.
With a massive bass-line and jazzical drums, the title track bounces into being. A new throbbing bass adds another volume busting layer to the mix. Vocals begin in playful, chanting, and poetic lines. They seem to jump from English to German with absolute ease. Maybe I'm just imagining it. The definite anarchic energy seeps from the bars as distorted and galloping sensations draw lines in the drying concrete.
Next is a track called Nuts. It begins with a huge bass-end sound that roars and rumbles like an engine changing gear. A harmonising pitch glistens over the top. A slower and more sensual energy drips from the vocal-line. The similar distortion creeps around the phonics as tuneful expressions of femininity churn and canter in unique and abstract motions.
