    The result is no sucker punch, but a knockout blow.

    Norbat Okelo is spare and spooky, Owiny Techno is Afro-psychedelia and Harpoon Land groove-heavy pop for Stone Rose fans who want to move on.
  3. You won't have heard anything like it before.

    Even though Nagalo Ni Piny Odag opens their second album in "traditional" style, all chirping percussion and Nyamungu's stringy twang, the tracks which follows cut across genre with winning flair. [Jun 2013, p.103]

    The group successfully takes the distinguishable drums and textures from traditional Kenyan music and put a new and exhilarating spin on it.
