- Buteo Buteo
If you're a Ghent resident or a Music Mania regular you've probably heard about STUFF.
The collective has in Lander Gyselinck (drums), Dries Laheye (bass), Mixmonster Menno (turntables, samples), Joris Caluwaerts (keyboards) and Andrew Claes (EWI - the electronic wind instrument on which sax, trumpet, oboe and flute can be played) the ideal group of musicians who make music that is both contemporary and future-oriented. STUFF. is an absolute dream debut!
The fact that the eponymous debut is overwhelming in all compositions certainly also has to do with the fact that the band had been playing together for quite a few years and haven't lost that live-feel on the record. Between the fabulous album opener 'Even Horizon' and the beautiful closing track 'R-Over', everything is equally exciting, surprising and daring. It's great to hear a band experiment and challenge each other like this. The result is an album on which every track, however different in timbre, really fascinates.
