Oh Man You Guys
Maybe I'll eventually get around to a coherent review and maybe I won't, but man oh man you guys: this album by De Kift is truly wonderful. There is no other word for it; it's just wonderful. It's sung entirely in Dutch, so it doesn't stand a ghost of a prayer in the American marketplace, but you shouldn't let that deter you from hunting it down. The horns, the percussion, the ensemble vocals: this is a deeply felt, very witty, simply wonderful album. The passion for music that so many touring American bands experience when they tour the Netherlands is present here in glorious relief. Here are the people who've been good enough to release it in the U.S. Thank them by seeking out this charming and unique record.
