kudu -- "boom boom" -- forthcoming on nublu


Beast of Burden
Kudu is the best NYC dance music act I've encountered in some time. (Actually, they're originally from Boston, and earlier versions of the group performed on the American rave scene.) One part d'n'b, one part stripped-down early 80s, one part wondrous diva vocalist. Primal electronic sound. Midi keyboard, live drums and programmed drums. Lyrics about colors, blood, exploring the body, exploring the psyche. On the NuBlu lablel, and they usually perform at NuBlu on Tuesday nights (5th street and Avenue C). [Note to S. Reynolds: I'm still working on burning you a copy of promo cd -- or perhaps I can simply lend it to you to burn]
