Basketball w/ Jailhouse Fuck
June 30, 2009 at WestGermany
Basketball, from Vancouver Canada; an energetic three piece that combines Middle Eastern and African traditional music with live electronics, spirited vocals, and massive percussion that grows into pulsating dance beats. From vocals in native tongues, Croatian and English, to the Persian scales, to the gypsy-esque spirit, Basketball exists amongst a history of music played on street corners and at celebrations around the world. The combination of their sound has drawn comparisons to artists such as Modeselektor, Gang Gang Dance, Panda Bear, and Konono N°1.
