MANNGOLD DE COBRE - S/T
Record Store Day 2014.
The fattest fish that I found on RSD2014 is without a doubt the first album of Manngold de Cobre.
Released in a limited edition of 125 copies on gold vinyl, with a bonus CD, and it swings !!
This is not bad. Actually, it is quite the opposite of bad.
Essential listening !!
This limited vinyl edition is probably sold out, but I have seen CD copies for sale as well.
Get it while you can.
MannGold de Cobre's debut album : Wild, energetic, tight and with a strong focus. Tribal repetitive mayhem (2 drums), the horn section sometimes hitting as hard as the MC5-ish guitars, as well as cosmic Sun Ra arrangements and scapes that heal and embrace as Davis' In A Silent Way. Add some proto space punk, free and noise and you're in for something really really unique.
