Boomkat Product Review:
Finally the return of Jens Massel, aka Senking, aka Kandis, aka Fumble - presenting his new project together with michael cramm, who accompanied him on some of his Kandis releases. Listening to Poto & Cabengo for the first time will probably be a surprise - poto & cabengo's music is influenced primarily by americana and folk-blues, not without humour in fact. You search for the creaky crackly sounds of Jens Massel and eventually realise they are still there amidst this jaunty music, though taking a fundamentally different route. Instruments take centre stage again and combine with touches from their electronic gear to create an album so unique that it can hardly be described. Vibrant with electronic sub-structures and instruments frayed at the edges with glowing, quirky songwriting skill - this is one of the most original and endearing releases on the ever-wonderful Karaoke Kalk label in some time. Lovely.
