NIEDOWIERZANIE - "JE NE SUIS PAS LÀ, JE NE SUIS PAS MORT" (rur039)
After the excellent "Paradies" CD out last year on Zoharum, our favorite lamenting troubadour is back on reel with the grooviest and also saddest NIEDOWIERZANIE album to date. On "Je ne suis pas là, je ne suis pas mort" ( "I'm not here, I'm not dead") the sun drenched mal de vivre, the mediterranean despair and bohemian misery reaches unchartered heights, inviting the listener to joyfully swing along over the debris of a mislead existence. Punchy rhythm machines and swag synth basslines collide with washed out mandoline chords and swirling accordion, urban modernity encounters folklore, east meets west & This is where all antagonisms join in the cheery carousel of exasperation.
