Back for More – Kudu / CD


INFO

New York – Hailed as “one of New York’s most caustic and daringly inventive dark electronic dance-pop outfits” with an equally eruptive live show, KUDU triumphantly return with their stunning new remix album “BACK FOR MORE: A REMIX COLLECTION” which follows their acclaimed 2006 full-length “Death of the Party”. The explosive 13-track set features over 70 minutes of energized selections in- cluding new and previously released tracks, rarities and masterful reconstructions by Armand Van Helden, Sinden, Tommie Sunshine, King Britt, Drop the Lime, Hess is More and up and coming NYC producers Dance with White Girls, Ling Ling and Curtis Vodka.

The album brilliantly frames and echoes the band’s expan- sive musical scope, eruptive fury and glossy pop sophisti- cation. Vocalist/songwriter Sylvia Gordon’s commanding vocals, provocative lyrics and razor-sharp delivery grip listeners in a sinister embrace that’s equally soothing and forceful. Add in the potent sonic backdrop of master drummer Deantoni “D” Parks and synth programmer Nick.

The group has become the darlings of New York’s under- ground music scene and a veritable force to reckon with attracting critical acclaim, a loyal cult following and the adoration of some of the most influential and estab- lished innovators in the music industry.

Over the past year alone, the multi-talented outfit has worked with an impressive list of groundbreaking artists including Moby, Me’shell Ndegeocello, Basement Jaxx, The Mars Volta, John Cale, Spank Rock and Benny Blanco, Santo- gold, Telepopmusik and many more.

“One of the bands to watch for from Brooklyn’s most vibrant music scene.”

The Guardian Unlimited

“Kudu are just great– a weird meld of torrid and frigid, alluring and domineering.”

Simon Reynolds

“Bracingly physical!”

New York Times

“Kudu are raw, powerful, and darkly melodic- last-party-before-you-die music.”
