Ost & Kjex Cajun Lunch

Ost & Kjex Cajun Lunch
This fine Oslo duo have a strange thing for food in their music. Check past releases Boston Food Strangler and How Not To Be A Biscuit. Their debut 2004 album, Some Cheese But Not All Cheese Comes From The Moon, was nominated for a Norwegian Grammy. In 2010, second LP Cajun Lunch sizzles featured crispy, sweet house and electro intermingled with funk and delta blues. Ost, Kjex and guest Tracee Meyn offer vocals on the LP, receiving assistance from her gospel choir on songs such as "A New Deal." This track feels dark and gracious, veering from house deep down the way to the organic goodness achieved by the record. "Continental Lover" features a kind of geeky bravery by Mr. Ost in his vocals, juxtaposed with solid, confident piano and breathy effects. Tracee Meyn has a "real" quality in her voice that's deliciously existent. On this release, the D.I.Y. in Diynamic Music resounds refreshingly. (Diynamic)
