Socalled – Sleepover

socalled-sleepoverMB3, 2011

Thought you heard every variation of every genre out there already? If so, you probably haven’t heard of Josh Dolgin yet- a Canadian Jewish artist who raps over an accordion among other things. A grab bag of sounds and textures, Sleepover plays host to jazz, folktronica, neo-soul, hip-hop, house music and various other lively, exciting avenues. The record utilises the voice of Roxanne Shante, though there are amazingly nearly 40 accomplished musicans making appearances here, even 95 year old pianist Irving Fields lends a hand alongside trombone legend Fred Wesley. You’ve never heard anything like this, trust me.
