Carnaval – Tennis, Football, Basketball


Carnaval – Tennis, Football, Basketball
Self released – 2012
Rock, Stoner, Alternative, Blues
Rated: *****


Twisted memories of a drunken night in Metelkova, Ljubljana. Drinking beers and bears blood at Jalla Jalla and wandering the streets till dawn. Discovering the hometown and true spirit of Carnaval. One that knows that everything worth doing, is worth doing right. Founded in 2004 as Pinocchio Pinchball and renamed a year later they already released one demo called Knez Atula and two full-sized albums called 1 and 2. And now their third installment has risen: Tennis, Football, Basketball. Eight songs in very limited edition packaging and sold for an incredible low price. Eight tracks leaning on their very recognizable massive groove with bitter sweet languid singing and almost whispering rhythms. Intelligent structures and enough hypnotism to manipulate the mind but never become to psychedelic. Heavy stoner and groovy blues, alternative rock and instrumental madness. There’s some distinctive sadness, fatalism and ‘fuck it all’ acceptance to their music and an apparent message in it all. These guys are on a mission; please let them preach it in every dirty little bar in every stinking city in the world…
