Bauchklang - Many PeopleKlein Records
This Album from the excellent and diverse Klein label has got a serious groove. Blauchklang are six "heads" from Austria whose only previous long playing release was 'Jamzero' back in 2001. 'Many People' is like nothing else i've heard. It would be impossible to pigeonhole, but lies somewhere in the 'extremely soulful' category. Don't get me wrong you won't hear this on Trevor Nelson's show. It's far too good and left of middle for that. It just has to heard to be defined. Vocal's are a major part of the album, but the beats compliment down to a tee. Some of the vibe is totally uptempo whilst other grooves are slow and dark. Looking for something different that sounds like Prefuse 73 recording with Rhazel's throat on Sonar Kollektiv? This could be the closest your gonna get.
