On the surface, it may look provocative yet simple. Take Rage Against the Machine rock rap metal and put a horn section in the foreground. And replace the hypertaggade Zack de la Rocha with an equally intense female vocalist.
Where is the whole of the basic formula to New York city-the collective Brass Against. From the beginning called those purely of the Brass Against the Machine, and on last year's debut album, eight of the ten songs Rage Against the Machine covers.
you have to Wonder how it works, it is best to check out on Youtube, where they have put out every single song they have recorded. With live in the studio videos where a supertajt men in white overalls get the hard agitatorsrocken to swing in a way that manages the whole energy of the originals, and add some further dimensions of jazz, backbeats and cacophony.
make that you lose something, it is not so in the first place has spread.
personally, I was delighted as soon as I encountered the band's videos, and apart from the bushy blåsgroovet I thought that it was right that they found a so luminous lead singer Sophia Urista. Fixed lately, they have collaborated with several other voices, and when they make her Swedish debut called singer rather than Maya Azucena.
Which makes less difference than one might think. If anything, she is a högtrycksröst on even stronger overdrive, which is not unambiguously positive in the songs she sings, but phenomenal when she raps.
It is also so that they have continued to fill up with more songs, from the other direction than the Rage Against the Machine, and slightly more problematic. Mainly it's about more complex and tungtrampad hard rock, like Audioslave, Tool, and Jane's Addiction. Where the point of the revamp easily lose themselves in a trickier detailed.
The picks in addition, until the Black Sabbath old ”War pigs” and Led Zeppelin's ”Kashmir”, which is clearer and thus works better.
Rage Against the Machine-the songs that really carry it all, each and every guitar riffs seem made to be taken over by blåset and turned into something stötigare, rounder, yet more boisterous. A bit like an exceptionally funky jam, complete with horns and threats of violence.
You may understand that they want to move on and try other ideas, but something as simple and obvious can be hard to find.
