ESG - A South Bronx Story 2


ESG - A South Bronx Story 2 - Collectors Edition: Rarities (Soul Jazz) Comentários: The sister/daughter duo of ESG were pioneers of the New York DIY disco scene, bringing an avant-garde edge to what was regarded in most quarters as throwaway pop music. This followup to the 2000 released retrospective of their work collects a whole bunch of rarities; B Sides, alternate versions, compilation tracks - you should know the score now. You should also know that ESG rarely pulled a duff track and although this is something of an odds and sods collection it's really rather good indeed. Kicking off with 'Bam Bam Jam' they start as they mean to go on and it's all uphill from here, launching immediately afterward into 'Erase You' which is some kind of template for the whole riot grrrl thing if I ever heard it. Coming beautifully presented from the always reliable Soul Jazz posse this should have you disco fans in raptures. in boomkat [Para Ouvir]
Entre o disco e a explosão da no-wave em Nova Iorque, as ESG encontraram o meio-termo com o seu minimalismo funk. Irmãs e mãe revolucionaram a música de dança com praticamente apenas os elementos básicos: bateria e baixo. Depois do material compilado em «A South Bronx Story», a Soul Jazz edita agora uma parte dois, com raridades e versões alternativas de temas já conhecidos, como «You're No Good», «Moody», «Dance» e «Erase You». Fundamental para quem nunca ouviu, importante para quem tem o resto. Os temas mais obscuros compensam plenamente a redescoberta desta versão mais espartana do clã Jackson. Punk e funk raramente foram um género único tão eficaz como em ESG. in flur
