Belsonic 2010 - Babeshadow

Babeshadowcopy.jpgDescribe in a tweet: Summery afro-pop in the middle of a hurricane.

What happened: Despite the fact that appears that we've bypassed the end of summer, and gone straight through to midwinter, Babeshadow plough on regardless, jangling and bopping along, like there's no tomorrow. That Vampire Weekend-esque brand of guitar based afro-pop is very much in vogue right now, but one wonders how much more room to manoeuvre there can be with a sound as rigidly genre based as this.

No matter, as they do it quite well, and at least go some way to convincing us that we're not getting pneumonia.

Moonlight Shadow: Some of those intricate guitar melodies would bring a smile to Paul Simon's face.

The Shadow of my Lung: At times, it all gets a bit anonymous. Paul Simon would be sad.

Belsonic Rating: 6/10
