Greetje Bijma Kwintet - Dark Moves (Netherlands 1987)

Mutant Sounds Album Of The Week

Another random selection from Mutant Sounds and I'm gonna dispense with this one pretty early cos it don't really appeal to me much at all. This album starts of mellowish enough with a sort of cabaret jazzy feel on the first track and the singer has a powerful voice and uses it quite unconventionally The album continues with humming and yodelling and degenerate into all sorts of weird vocal sounds. Fans of Dimanda Galas may take to this. The first couple of tracks are ok and I don't mind the off beat jazz backing music but the descent into madness kinda puts me off. Rating 2/5.
