Album Review

Black Ox Orkestar – “Nisht Azoy ” – [Constellation]

cinder   11/17/2006   12-inch, A Library

From Montreal, Black Ox Orckestar contains members of Godspeed You Black Emperor/A Silver Mt. Zion and
Sackville. This sounds nothing like those bands
though! Original re-interpritations of Jewish music
traditions, acoustic instrumentation, Yiddish
singing… this record is beautiful! The record’s
name translates into “Not Like This”. They Listened to
pre-war recordings of Jewish and non-Jewish music from Eastern Europe and the Balkans, and wanted to capture the rawness and emotional intensity they heard there. I definantly feel it, and think this is slowly
becoming my new favorite type of foreign sound, so
