Korai Öröm - "2010"
From Aural Innovations #41 (October 2010)
The mostly instrumental Hungarian ethnic psychedelic rock band is back with a new CD. The sound is clean, more programmed and more mainstream than anything else the band has done in the past. And like their 2009 CD, they have started to give the songs names instead of just untitled 1, 2, 3. etc.. that they did will all the previous records. It is nice to have some names on the tunes. There are 8 tracks in just under 50 mins. The band features a new keyboard player who uses more programmed and poppy like stuff than the previous player so this gives the music a less organic feeling in general. Still, the band delivers some very cool tracks with the very percussive side of the band highlighted and also some cool psychedelic parts, while over all the sound of the band is a bit more mainstream. If you like mostly instrumental music, with some catchy rhythms and good grooves, check it out.
