Boomkat Product Review:
Moving debut album from this new Montreal-based quartet on the intriguing Constellation imprint. Black Ox Orkestar are comprised of members of bands as diverse as Godspeed You ! Black Emperor, Sackville and Silver Mt. Zion. Filtering traditional European Jewish folk music (mostly Hassidic) through post-rock aesthetics, Ver Tanzt? is an important record, both revealing the roots and influences underlying much of the Constellation catalogue and making traditional Klezmer music accessible to a contemporary audience. Along with Elizabeth Anka Vajagic's 'Stand With the Stillness of This Day', this album marks the beginning of a new chapter in Constellation's history: a move away from the epic, instrumental post-rock associated so closely with the label into new but altogether more traditional territory. The album is available on CD and 180g LP formats, each in lovely chipboard packaging, and both featuring an 8-page booklet. Highly Recommended.
