Mama Loo - Whitecap

'White cap' is the fourth album by Mama Loo. I've been listening to it for the last couple of evenings and it's quite unlike anything I've heard before.
Mama loo are an innovative and adventurous Dutch power trio creating impressionistic dreamscapes of music and words. This album will take you into another world of melancholy yet joyous emotional adventure. The particular highlights for me are 'Undertow' and 'Bitter Heart' but the whole albums casts a spell for its whole running time. I've been a huge fan of Edwin de Herder's music for many years and consider him to be one of the world's best guitar players. Here he's supported by the great drumming and bass playing of Gerrie Spaansen and Rory van den Bergh on a highly unusual and captivating album. You should hear 'Whitecap'.

You can listen to it and download it from Bandcamp
