Boomkat Product Review:
Rebetika derives its name from a popular music form from 1930s Greece, similar in tone to American blues. Composer Yannis Kyriakides and guitarist Andy Moor offer their own avant-garde take on this music over the course of this highly unusual long-player.
The starting point for these songs is a series of scratchy old bouzouki recordings, which are then sampled and manipulated while real-time guitar is overlaid. This meeting of old musical styles, decrepit recordings and very modern string experiments results in an often very emotive blend, effectively re-writing the past with a combination of reverence and adventurous Tetuzi Akiyama-like musicianship, sounding like an angular, Eastern European Charley Patton on the especially haunting 'Minores'.
