“never change a winnig team”. that s what radio citizen s niko schabel must have thought when he decided to release his fourth album once again on sonar kollektiv. after the success of “the night & the city” (sk310lp / cd) from 2015 and the productive collaboration ever since this seems like a wise resolution. schabel s idea to retrieve to a mountain cabin in salvenberg, tirol with his band and tons of equipment turned out to be an even more crucial factor to the cause. here they could create and record new songs and bring them together neatly for the new album. the 13 tracks assembled here on “silent guide” are – each on its own and in its entirety anyway – best proof how wonderfully this approach has worked out.
double vinyl in gatefold sleeve with download code included.
five years after the excursion to san francisco schabel now returns with his combo to the haven of his hometown. “the night & the city” is an album tailor-made for sonar kollektiv: a melange of genres which deploys live instruments on an equal footing with samples and herewith becomes a highly explosive mixture of latin percussion, funk, poppy dub, moody, folky soul, afrobeat, ethno-jazz, bossa nova, hiphop und blaxploitation soundtracks.
das coveralbum “radiodread” von den easy star all-stars erschien ursprünglich 2006 als nachfolger ihres kultalbums “dub side of the moon” von 2003. für “radiodread” diente radioheads album-klassiker “ok computer” als inspiration, und so wurde aus dem masterpiece des modernen rock ein energiegeladener und trippiger ausflug in die welt des dub & reggae. eine imposante liste namhafter gäste machte bei diesem spaß mit, darunter toots & the maytals, horace andy, morgan heritage, sugar minott, frankie paul, citizen cope oder israel vibration. nun erscheint das album in einer neuen edition mit 15 tracks, inklusive “high and dry” featuring morgan heritage, auch als limitiertes, goldfarbiges doppelvinyl im klappcover.
