Description

2017 Record Store Day release - Includes a 12"x12" sticker sheet, inner sleeves and a download coupon. Double LP pressed at 45rpm. The Dewaele brothers' first LP in eleven years is actually a soundtrack to Belgica, a Belgian film by the Oscar-nominated director Felix Van Groeningen about two brothers who run a hedonistic nightclub in Ghent, Soulwax's hometown. For the sixteen-track album, the band invented fifteen fictional personas, each with its own sound, aesthetic, and backstory that draw from different decades of club culture. Genres range from Studio 1 reggae to indie rock, under pseudonyms like Burning Phlegm, White Virgins, and Noah's Dark. (The Shitz do double duty – no pun intended.) That a band could attempt a project like this with such strict historical verisimilitude is a fascinating technical exercise; the fact that many of these songs are actually decent is just an added bonus.
