Hassan K. – Birds (2012)

  • Alternative
  • Surf pop
  • Electronic pop
  • Big beat
  • World music
  • Sampledelic
  • Crossover

Comment: typified by abrupt changes of mood from track to track this 13-track pastiche constitutes an uncanny combination of surf guitars riffs, mid-tempo glowering electronica, more accelerated electro and big beat loaded breaks, and Orient-inspired sampledelic progressions (tanpura drones and singing). However, some tracks are way too short therefore to be considered as snippets or outtakes rather than full-fledged compositions. Quite frequently Hassan K`s electronic explorations come quite close to Dave Keifer aka Cagey House`s haunting, otherworldly chiming chamber electronica. Once again, those surf guitars and oriental chants used to undulate in a great way.
