The Cromagnon Band
Curated by Stereolab
London’s The Cromagnon Band had made a splash before releasing any work; prior to their debut LP’s launch via We Stay True, the trio had featured on compilations from Andy Votel and Doug Shipton’s Finder Keepers label and been sampled by The Go! Team. Their first record is hard to pin down. Is it jazz, hip-hop, or both? For Bert Page, Lenny Walker, and Tom Watt (of Wolf People), their method is better described as ‘reverse engineering’, as they take apart the music they love, and carefully assemble it back together; hence, ‘Dismantle’, the album’s title.
