TONESHIFT: VoizNoiz reissue & remix

Hard to do a quick summation on this one as it has some distinct personalities, all quite wonderful and odd.

Banabila brightens the room with abstract effects, crackle and hiss and playful genre-bending – from blues to pop to world musics to county fair to folk and back again –

all brought together in a clever electronic production. It’s got a soul and a wry sensibility. Oh, and there’s a notable, bright mix collaboration with Oene Van Geel.

(TJ Norris)
