Globalist and out of the schemes, the album draws an imaginary line between dub echoes in the shacks of Kingston and flashes of pure rock'n'roll, between a funeral in New Orleans and a gypsy wedding in the balcan countryside. The guitars hovering between reggae and manouche get mixed up with the sharp brass riffs over a rhythmic dovetail made of drums and typewriter. The bass frequencies all rely on the mighty sousaphone, a sort of tuba for parades. The instrumentation makes everything sounds very original and recognizable, as a protopunk little orchestra can do. The lyrics depict stories of landscapes, trails, changes, tastes and memories, ambitions and disappointments, travels and inner turmoil.

Veeblefetzer Roma, Italy

Veeblefetzer is a reggae, hip hop, brass’n’roll experience with a tropical gypsy flavour. Wondrous horns emerging out of the low-down grooves to shoot it to the moon. A spontaneously lively band, 100% artistic and fascinating like poets and street buskers can be. ... more
