Mean guitars, addictive lyrics, and Cajun accordion! I have been waiting years for something original to happen in music...well, here it is. I hear this guy is from South Africa. Amazing music. Modern sounding, but with attitude. Best track is this one by far, but also check out 'Sex on the Radio'. Nothing else like it on the radio-trust me. Enjoy KONGOS!
Great debut I had heard and liked Come With Me Now (took a few listens to grow on me), and I was mostly blown away by the rest of the album. Not sure I ever imagined hearing an accordion meshing with alternative rock. Standout cuts: Come With Me Now, I Wanna Know, Take Me Back, and Kids These Days
Amazing band This band is awesome. Real talent, original and just as good live as they are on the album. Saw them live recently and loved it. Love this album. My favorite is a tie between "I'm only joking" and "hey I don't know". However when I'm feeling more chill "escape" totally fits the bill. Awesome awesome group and super chill guys.
Kongos I fell in love with this band the first time I heard their song 'come with me now' on the radio. So I decided to look up their other songs and I couldn't have been more impressed. These guys have true talent. I hope to see them live one day (:
Lunatic for Lunatic Best band I've heard in a long time: head banging rhythms, intelligent and thought provoking lyrics, wide range of musical styles...oh and they've got an ACCORDION
Full five stars! Saw this band open for Kings of Leon in St. Louis July 31st. They are absolutely wonderful! Very energetic and really great music. I could have listened to them for hours.
