Malachai | DNO241
Malachai is Hebrew for 'angel.' It's also the name of the red-haired kid from Children Of The Corn. From which the band's name is derived. Why we're not exactly sure. Malachai, strictly speaking, are a duo. They're from Bristol, England. They aren't part of a scene, but they reflect the Bristol vibe these days: groups with dubstep running through their bones, hip hop in the fingers, '60s psychedelia in the heart. At times, the album sounds like a Jamaican garage rock band. Other time it sounds like Merseybeat if the beats were supplied by RZA. Or like Dick Dale surfing the River Severn.
