Eggnogg – Louis


Eggnogg – Louis
Palaver records – 2012
Rock, Stoner, Doom, Grunge, Funk
Rated: ****


The Brooklyn trio Eggnogg released their second album Moments In Vacuum only a year ago and are now preparing to follow it up with a third album called You’re All Invited. But before they do just that they are coming out with an EP just like they did after their 2009 debut album The Three. Their new four track little ditty is called Louis and features stripped down; naked and slow mystical songs that border on sludge and doom but leans heavily on an old funky soul. The first track seems to be an indecisive heavy colossus looking in every direction possible without feeling the need to choose. The second explores a funky left field with seriously ill basswork and weird samples. After this we return to another sandy gem of pure heavy funk expertly done. Closing track The Once-ler is dark, moody and returns to the atmosphere explored on the first tune of the EP. Closing off an impressive chapter in the Eggnogg history. Soon another part of their story will be here to indulge us…
