Dustman Dilemma. The - On Second Thought (2018)
The second album from this French band.
The band is a sextet on this album with a lineup of saxophones, bass, drums, violin, bassoon, keyboards and vocals.
The band include members from Rhun and Nooumena and has released two albums. I have not heard their first album.
Their music is avant-garde/RIO. It is very much RIO in fact in the good old style and in the tradition of the very first RIO bands.
There is a lot of bassoon and saxophones here. The music also has a lot of chamber rock in it. It is chamber rock and pretty much acoustic.
There is also some medieval folk rock here.
The vocals is a mix of melodic and roaring insane. But most melodic male vocals.
This forty minutes long album is pretty much melodic but still total RIO chamber rock. And there is a lot of good things to be said about this album. The woodwinds is very good and the balance is right.
This is indeed a good album and an avant-garde well worth checking out.
