Jaune Toujours offWomex showcase! 30/10/09, Studio 2, 22:45
Jaune Toujours' fifth album KOLEKTIV continues on the same vibes for which they are being internationally appreciated: no linguistic or other borders (singing in French, English and Dutch), catchy songs, punky attitude, drum&brass, balkan madness, accordion dub and Belgian ska.
“A pumping rythm section of drums and upright bass, fiery brass, stomping accordeon and a gravelly voice at once passionate and sardonic, elements of folk, rock, ska, Balkan, chanson and jazz. The sound of Brussels octet Jaune Toujours is one of the most instantly recognisable on the roots music scene and all of the expected elements are present and pretty darn correct on this their sixth album. In all, this sounds like their best album yet.”
Jamie Renton In fROOTS, 2009
“Bravura hotchpotch, complete with ‘funny English’. Anyone who has seen this outfit live knows that their sheer musicianship ensures these sounds go together like moules et frites. This is party music for playing loud. Jaune Toujours prove once again that far from being boring, Brussels is hot, hot, hot.” (4 stars)
