De Staat – Machinery


De Staat – Machinery
Pias – 2011
Rock/Robot/Stoner/Funk
Waardering: ****


Ever since the album Wait For Evolution came out in 2009, frontman Torre Florim and his band De Staat have become a household name. And a lot was expected of course from their second album Machinery soon to be released. Luckily they meet those expectations; but not as explosively as on their first album. But of course; that one had the element of surprise going for it. Again we are treated to groove a la Queens of The Stone Age, breaks we know of Grampall Jookabox but also twisted funk like Beck and the dark tales of Nick Cave. It is a worthy successor to their first record and one that will cement De Staat’s place in the collective mind even more. After this everyone can justly claim that there is a De Staat sound. A whirlwind of eclectic musical styles that always surprises, is highly entertaining and builds you up like a machine before breaking you down again. Loving it!

  2. Hoy me los recomendó una amiga, parecen un poco freaks y tienen un interesante parecido con QOTSA/EAGLES OF DEATH METAL. Los estudiaré.

    Saludos.
