Dirtmusic soil the party


I DON'T mean for this to be a mudslinging exercise, but with eclectic influences behind Dirtmusic's BKO, only some of it sticks.
A mixture of bluesy guitar licks, traditional Saharan African music, folky classic rock and more, the coming together of band leaders Chris Eckman, Hugo Race and Chris Brokaw and Toureg band Tamikrest has no shortage of ideas.
Some of these fail to inspire - like the plodding All Tomorrow's Parties - but where the balance is right, tracks like Smokin Bowl and Black Gravity are likely to be dusted off again and again.
