Knarsetand: My Escape

photo: Hanneke Wetzer

Dutch dectet Knarsetand have made this year's ultimate Summer album. My Escape mixes drums 'n' bass, techno, trance, latin, gypsy, ska and a few invented on the spot genres. Somehow it all fits. It is a seamless sonic jigsaw puzzle, with the brass section and singer Miou Amadée leading the way.

While most party record fall flat in a home environment My Escape comes howling from the speakers, turning the living room into a sunny, crowded festival ground. Recommended if you like MK Groove Orchestra, DeVotchKa and Mano Negra.

Miou Amadée: vocals
Tom van Sadelhoff: drums
Pim Kokkeler: guitar
