DAAU "Life Transmission" ***
Die Anarchistische Abendunterhaltung moved from Sony Classical to Columbia and
enlarged the line-up from 4 to 5 men, maybe the reason that this has become their
most varied and impressive album so far.
Jan de Wilde "Oude Maan"
*** "old moon", the first CD by
this modest man after a silence of over 10 years, with 11 short songs and truthful
observations. Hé hopes it won't be a success, we do.
Das Pop "I Love" ***
The eagerly awaited debut album by this bunch of young turks from Ghent, reinventing
pop music in Britpop-style, assembling a catchy bunch of songs with elements from
60's, 70's, 80's ànd 90's.
Daan "Verboden te zuchten" OST.
Soundtrack by Daan Stuyven (Dead Man Ray etc.) to an introspective film of Alex
Stockman. Don't expect too many songs, but all the more atmosphere. And in the
"composer's cut" even ...
Derek & Vis "Makin' Water"
The duo from Ghent returns to songs in the English language, and does so in style.
On "Makin' Water" Derek sounds raw and old and poetic, naming Tom Waits
& Bob Dylan as inspirations and references.
Dead Man Ray "Trap" ***
Second album of Daan, Rudy Trouvé and Co. Multi-layered dazzling soundscapes
that are firmly rooted on true quality pop & rock songs.
Decibel "Sightseeing" Rockband
from Vorselaar with a past in hard-rock. Nowadays they have calmed down considerably,
and present their second, self-produced CD.
D-Regulators - D-Day Dr. Boogie,
Tornado Luke, Walkin' Winne & Gerry Fever used to be called Regulators, but
with a "D-" extra they release their second album filled with all kinds
of blues & swing.
Kris Dane "Boy, 26" 2nd solo-album
of ex-801 KD Concept drummer/singer Kris Dane. Produces an impressive array of
musical styles and sounds (from Jeff Buckley to Bowie to Lou Reed to Prince ...).
Beautiful showcase of a musical talent.
Marjan Debaene "Humanoid"
Second CD of this girl from Ieper and her rocking backing band. Poppier than the
average singer-songwriter and with a beautiful Madonna-cover.
DobroJean "'Bout Time"
Debut album of Jan Oelbrandt, on resonatorguitar or dobro. Straight from the mean
old Flemish swamps.
Daan - "Profools" ***
Solo-cd of the Dead Man Ray singer. Attractive Lo-fi hardcore disco (or is that
dEUS "The Ideal Crash" ***
Third album of the most internationally acclaimed Belgian group. Worth every single
praising word they say about it.
