‘Ready’ has the most modern vibe of any track on the record. A rolling bassline and steady groove drums give Anthuenis a trip-hop rhythm over which to get expressive. Organ and deep city horns whir by like passing traffic. ‘The Shell Game’ provides further dimension with a drum-led march accented by demented organ runs. A trick often utilized by The Doors. Anthuenis goes on a rant like a possessed Morrison.
Night Shadows shows off the depth of this multifaceted band. A group whose love of American music has permeated their art in many ways. Yet, the European vibe remains creating a fascinating confluence of musical tributaries.
