Thought of the Day:
Somerfaan - Alien Boogie Stuff
It's 2016, you can go anywhere, you can do anything. Somerfaan's genre free album could be the soundtrack!
Latin beats, Dubstep, William Boroughs cut ups, Tom Waits in a krautrock tumble dryer, 90's Rave, Hip Hop Opera and a treasure trove of other hybrid genre inventions play out with equal measures of humour and heart on At Nel's latest album 'Alien Boogie Stuff'.
It's as if Madlib's Quasimoto grew up white and Afrikaans, spend time in the frayed edges of Jozi's unsettled Bez Valley playing in an Industrial band, only to later discover beats come in all flavours... even 'happy gas'. The album's closing track 'Happy Dancing Zombie' is brilliant Pop electronica, it tells of a time when the Faan was younger, when dancing made him feel free... it's cheesy, it's happy, it's cool. - Chris Keys
