    Hi Moka ::

    The portuguese webradio program “Má Fama” (Bad Fame) interviewed Ignatz, responsible for one of the last years most impressive debut albums. Bram Devens (his real name) performed also, exclusively, two songs.

    “It recalls the lo-fi contrariness of Alastair Galbraith and even the inscrutable shadings of Mississippi John Hurt or Bascom Lamar Lunsford on Hearry Smith’s Anthology Of American Folk Music. Combned with a certain amount of lurch and give between the sampled parts, an atmosphere of sleeptalking and sleepwalking prevails” Wire

    Ignatz is oddly glorious. (...) Listen carefully and you will catch the real American folk revival unfolding, not the bearded acoustics of handsome hippies and earnest neo-troubadours. It lies behind them and beneath them, and yes, even in Brussels. The music is noisy and untrammeled. It does not speak of clouds and it does not speak of justice. But it will occasionally undertake the hard work of all true folk music, which is reckoning with the gravity of the past. And at its best, it will find the New World old again, ineluctably old. Pitchforkmedia 8/10

    “It´s almost as if this were some long lost future edition of Harry Smith´s Anthology of Alien Folk Music, with Ignatz simultaneously channelling Roscoe Holcomb and Fennesz. Alien Ambient Appalachia maybe. Future Folk? New Weird Belgium? Whatever this is, it´s dark and dense and thick and warm and weird and lovely and one of the weirdest most wonderful things we´ve heard.” Aquarius
