Album: BBB (Balkan Beat Box), Give (Crammed Discs)
This New York-based trio's name has always irritated because it fails to convey how musically eclectic they are.
So it's good that they've stripped it back to BBB for their most consistently excellent album to date. The political dimension is stronger than ever, but just as importantly so is the songwriting. So you get solid, original grooves touching on everything from ragga, to rock, to electronica, ably supported by sinuous melodies and radio-friendly hooks.
