Electric Gypsyland 2
by Various Artists
Released: Oct 2006
Rounding out the Gypsy club scene is this comp from the fabulous Crammed Discs. The first disc pairs classic cuts from old-school Roma outfits remixed and/or reinterpreted by the new school, which includes a few tried-and-true Gypsy-philes (including Shantel) and a whole bunch of indie rockers with penchants for cabarets and circuses. The results are varied but always interesting (we're particularly partially to Nouvelle Vague's shimmering, soft-edged take on Mahala Rai Banda). 'The second disc pays its respects with straight-up songs by the Balkan bands.
