Jade Starr Dynamic, Eclectic and no matter what The mood this album makes life seem shinier than before it blesses my ears! Favorite track: Three Piece Lawsuit.

Zab Greatest folk punk band I've ever come accross. They absolutely killed it, adding some novelty to what is often a quite boring and oversimplified music genre. I wish they had done other albums after this masterpiece. That's just too bad.

Merijn Kooijman Swingy with an always present tension. Very melodic and switching from happy to somewhat creeping. Nice. Favorite track: Octopus.

Yanir Way cleaner than their live shows. A wonderful album by a great band. Favorite track: Dogs Of Rotterdam.

Keith Kasyan A stunning first full album. More accessible than the gypsy-punk-noise of their earlier EP, but still hard edged and original. You will never hear clarinet and tenor sax rock harder. Favorite track: Dogs Of Rotterdam.

about

Into the Mouths of Hungry Giants is the culmination of 6 years of travel, triumph and tribulation. The first full length album release from Australian band the Barons of Tang, it is document in experimental world music. Beautiful and brutal, it is skilful and chaotic all the while following a sonic theme that’s hard to put your finger on. True, the Barons have developed a signature sound over the years but this is the album where their full dynamics become apparent. The 7 piece outfit has an arsenal of Instruments at their disposal on this record, including accordion, banjo, bass and contra-bass clarinet, trombone and double bass.

The record reflects on the world-wide travel the band has enjoyed but also the tyranny of distance and loss. It reflects the tiny tragedies faced by traveling artists: Break ins, Break ups, break outs and break downs. Deaths and gifts wrapping, tolls and tuberculosis and maybe no ones listening or maybe you have the whole world on the edge of its seat . These are their stories, told in old and new conventions, music from the past for the future. We move through sound and light, and fall into the mouths of hungry giants.
