Album Review

Gould, David Solid Vs Laswell, Bill – “Dub of The Passover” – [Tzadik]

surferrosa   11/8/2011   CD, Reggae

Welcome to the Passover seder in the house of dub! This cd contains Bill Laswell’s dubbed out translations of traditional Passover songs typically sung at the seder table longside the readaing of he Agada (sotry of Passover). Each song correlates to a specific event or concept connected to the story. The music here is executed in your favorite dub fashion. Plenty of reverb, echoed out drums, a bit of keys, lots of horns, an occasional guitar lick or voal sample and a touch of synthesized sound. I even heard some Heberw on trakcs 10, 11 & 12! This album is quite delightful and even a bit nostalgic for Jews like me. Lechaim! -Surfer Rosa
