4 stars Ukandanz burst onto the Avant scene in 2012 with their debut of Ethiopian / French Crunchy Avant though much of the music on the album was fresh takes on popular Ethiopian music. Their new album is mainly original compositions and benefits significantly from playing to the bands strengths. Asnake Gebreyes is an extremely strong Ethiopian vocalist who's high energy vocal gymnastics are a major feature of the band. The instrumental members of the band come from the vibrant Lyon scene that seems to produce so many excellent bands, Benoît Lecomte (bass) is a member of ni, & Guilhem Meier (drums) is in PoiL. As you would expect from that background the music is extremely frenetic, energetic and rapid moving. The combination of vocals and high energy band works really well and this is a good step forward for the band. They played the Rock In Opposition festival in recent years and went down extremely well. Recommended.
