TR021 - Tiny Room Records 2017

Babalong is the experimental studio project of Dave Mollen (Utrecht) and Willem Waterschoot (The Hague). A wide range of studio musicians and producers is gathered around these two creative minds.

Since 2013, they released four EPs on their Bandcamp page. The music on these experimental recordings varies from Dutch minimalism and Radiohead-like electronics to reggae and the absurdity of Scott Walker's later work. A weird mix of styles, made by a group of studio fanatics who feel at home in an environment of knobs, synths and microphones.

This eclectic approach is absent on Greatest Hits, Babalong's first full length album. Like the title indicates, this album is all about hits. Pop hits. Catchy, slick, produced pop songs. Of course you will hear the urge to experiment in the arrangements, choirs and samples, but the focus is on the songs. Imagine Justin Bieber producing the new Animal Collective record. Or Beyonce's songwriters writing songs for Sigur Rós. The sound is modern and thoroughly crafted, with a clear form and direction. You cannot get these earworms out of your head, even after hearing them once. Greatest Hits is a successful experiment in accessibility.

Longer is the first single of the album.
