Oor reviews Execute American Folklore

For our English-speaking friends, here’s an amusing internet translation of the Oor review…………..And the farmer, he plowed on. After their debut in 1997 as a late bloomer to have solo, it seems this ex-68-year-old mover from New York now when working on the most productive years of his life. He writes songs galore. Meanwhile, he discovered the electronics and he is also getting better grounded in anything with strings and keys, so he has no band. Execute American Folklore is his seventh album since 2010 and then we are cooperation projects. Just like on his previous album is only present as a guest singer Anna Coogan; they may include rapping that she was suicidal. Dowd wrong textual form in blood. If not unprecedented cynical annoyances of man in general or in particular to the American song texts processed, then he’s on his way just unusually funny. ‘ My baby likes to eat Chinese, she doesn’t like to cook. ‘ In the meantime, everyone should count his blessings and let swing back and forth between electronic rhythms and melodic guitar lines that seem to stem from the sixties, between danceable and accessible and unorthodox avant-garde. Great album, with again a Dutch link: after previously Rik van Iersel (Beech Orchestra) made now kindred spirit rik (Smutfish) the beautiful cover portrait. WILLEM JONGENEELEN
