Solex vs Cristina Martinez & Jon Spencer To Release Album May 18
The triumvirate have created a sonic dilemma with Amsterdam Throwdown, King Street Showdown! Do you listen or do you dance? Whichever, you'll have your shrink on speed dial as you contemplate whether it mocks Jesus to have this much fun, what with the apocalypse being just around the corner and all.
Amsterdam Throwdown, Kingstreet Showdown! kicks off with the sugar-fix that is "Bon Bon", a dirty, funky bastard of a concoction, complete with strings. "Galaxy Man" is an outer-space go-go party with Link Wray's corpse! "Dog Hit" is a tale of irresponsible pet ownership, as if told by sexed-up and AWOL philharmonic orchestra members on MDMA! "Aapie" is a tribute to our ancestry and invites us to unleash our inner monkey! As you can see, there is something for all tastes.
Throughout, Elisabeth Esselink has ingeniously fattened up a rich tapestry of cool, the perfect canvas for Cristina and Jon, who pepper-spray it with personalized lunacy whilst shrugging off the wannabes scrambling for their plinth.
