OP:L BASTARDS - 2


O trio filandês OP:L BASTARDS (Timo Kaukolampi, Mikko Viljakainen, Tuomo Puranen) têm um novo album : "2" sucessor do "The Job" (2001), a edição é da Iron-Magnesium. "2" está recheado de ritmos psicadélicos que tendem a evoluir progressivamente para um plano electrónico e ambiental. Com este álbum, o trio leva-nos a acreditar que nos dias que correm ainda existe espaço para pequenos momentos criativos que em jeito de provocação nos mordiscam as orelhas com um quê de disco e de electro a la krautrock. Simplesmente Genial! Recomenda-se! [Para Ouvir/Samples]
