  • Summary: This is the second album for film composer David Wingo as Ola Podrida.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 5
  2. Negative: 0 out of 5
  1. These climactic moments help Belly Of The Lion to ultimately feel more consequential and less of a project for a moonlighting soundtracker. He’ll need some help to recreate it live, but on record David Wingo has shown that he can pull it off on his own.
  2. Wingo recorded Belly of the Lion in his apartment, playing all the instruments himself (although he did hire a drummer for four songs), so the range of sounds is limited. Their range of use, however, is not.
  3. Under The Radar
    The record is a quiet gem, something very rare in these times. [Holiday 2009, p.79]
  4. Wingo's world is familiar but beautifully rendered.
  5. There are nine distinct, quite beautiful tracks on this record. But a few of them end up getting lost in this murky landscape, and in those moments the expansion of the record inverts itself into a slight limitation.
