The Greek alt-rock project of Prins Obi released the LP The Age Of Tourlou yesterday.
A fourteen track album (available on bandcamp) that casts an acerbic eye on the world around.
The opening song is Anatolian Rock. For those of geographical and geo-political interest which, if you are a regular reader, will be well aware – I am a keen follower. Anatolia is a region of disparate melting pots of different thoughts and by title alone a decent reflective of the sentiments of The Age Of Tourlou. As an aside I did at one point in time have an Anatolian Shepherd Dog named Galen as company as I travelled in Western Asia during the latter end of the last Century – but enough of all that – the song and why you should get to know the LP.
The Greece based electrowave project of Dimitris Papadatos – KU – released the LP Ganja on the 13th.
After a four year gap since the LP Feathers the return of KU, with Ganja, is marked as a collaborative release with guest musicians appearing on all eight tracks on the album (both albums are available on bandcamp).
The penultimate number Oolong features King Elephant (Percussion / Drums), KU (Vocals / Synthesizer) and Prins Obi (Moog synthesizer / Keyboards / Organ).
