Pepe Deluxé - Queen Of The Wave - out on Catskills Records

Queen of the Wave is the fourth record from Finnish duo Pepe Deluxé. Their first album, Super Sound, released in 1999 on Catskills Records, has aged quite much since then. Their second one, Beatitude, from 2003, saw them starting to write real songs, with arrangements to be filed between DJ Shadow, The Herbaliser and The Beatles. It was one of the major electronic album releases of the year. Pepe Deluxé came back in 2007 with Spare Time Machine, a tripped-out, psychedelic masterpiece that didn't really fit in any category anymore. So to say we were expecting this new album is no exaggeration, and this is indeed a new, in-your-face, kind of eccentric thing. From bizarre pop to 60's psychedelic rock, from science-fiction to metaphysics, from heavy drums to pastoral folk, this is an intense piece of music excellence that won't fit in the big beat/future jazz niche the band used to blend in. Favorite tracks include the prog-rock-ish Queenswave, the big-beatlesy A Night And A Day, the trip-hop ballad My Flaming Thirst and the ravaging Queen-on-peyote The Storm. Already a contender for the best albums of the year selection!
