A nice tune that's just the right amount of frantic and has just the right amount of bounce. I believe that most reviewers, when faced with a nifty little groove like the Ploctones have going on here, employ the word 'infectious' to describe the addictive effect the music has in making the foot tap and the body shake. Consider yourself warned; this song is catchy.
Saxophonist Ephraim Trujillo, bassist Jerome Vierdag, drummer Martijn Vink, and guitarist Anton Goudsmit played together for the first time in 2005, but officially named themselves The Ploctones two years later during a concert at the North Sea Jazz Festival. Goudsmit, the quartet's composer, is the most recent winner of the prestigious VPRO / Boy Edgar Prize, and was also voted by his fellow musicians as the best pop guitarist in the Netherlands in 2010. This explosive quartet demolishes musical borders, as they swing, whoosh, fly, move, vibrate, bang, and crack. Their new album 3.2.1. was released in April 2011.
