LOUP.LE : FAMILY: CD

Jan 12, 2010

Kinda hard to pigeonhole this one, which I figure is a point in their favor right off the bat. What it is is experimental and mellow, with a lot of crazy influences—bits of tribal and Latin rhythms, psychedelia, bluegrass, maybe even a little Gregorian chant influence—smooshed together. At times it reminds me of Peter Gabriel, while at others I’m thinkin’ early Pink Floyd with the “rock” pushed to the background. All that said, it sounds like, and nothing like, any/all of the above. Make sense to you? Me neither, but it was an interesting listen.
