    Oh, funny, It's 4am and I'm still wide awake. Damn. Which reminds me 2 AM, oh so fine. Pity I'm 2 hours late. Anyway. Nothing incredible to advice, but there's something fine anyway.

    Very fine electronic music. One of the discover I made through last.fm, who continously proposed this band to me, and it was right. I'm quite enjoying it: right enough experimental without getting to hard to listen to without much concentration.

    Ok, I'm late for the Gogol Bordello hype. Ok, they're nice and funny, but when looking to cabaret I still remain more an afficionado of dresden dolls. For the rest... interesting style mashup, but I'm not getting so excited. Am I so harsh towards them because I missed their concert when they were in Bologna?

    I listened too little times to this album to give an overall impression, but I think I will get to like it quite a lot in time. It's that kind of album which the first time you hear it you ask yourself what are they moaning to…
