Editorial Reviews

Unlikely but highly successful collaboration between Dutch DJ/mix-mistress Elisabeth 'Solex' Esselink and pioneering punky rock 'n' roll maverick Jon Spencer (Blues Explosion, Pussy Galore) and guitar-wrangling wife Cristina Martinez (Boss Hog frontwoman). Throwing together funk, punk, blues, electronica and dance styles.

If you're bored with your current music collection and could use an infusion of something weird, wild and altogether wonderful, I highly recommend checking out the 'sonic collagist' Solex (a.k.a. Elisabeth Esselink) from Amsterdam. I fell in love with Esselink's music back in 2001, when she released her third full-length album Low Kick and Hard Bop. Since then, she's released one more proper LP (2004's The Laughing Stock of Indie Rock), a one-off EP, and numerous remixes for other bands - until this month, when she released her first new album in six years, a collaboration with the married musical duo Cristina Martinez and Jon Spencer, titled Amsterdam Throwdown, King Street Showdown! It's already my favorite new album of the year. I could try describing it, but I wouldn't do as good of a job as the label releasing Esselink's new record does:

"Punk rock royalty Jon Spencer and Cristina Martinez have joined forces with Dutch electronic heroine Elisabeth Esselink, aka Solex, for the most exciting collaboration/confrontation since The Jetsons meet The Flinstones. Imagine if you will, a fisticuffs of funk, garage and soul between Captain Beefheart and Ike & Tina, with a sprinkling of hip-hop courtesy of Mike Ladd.

"The triumvirate have created a sonic dilemma with Amsterdam Throwdown, King Street Showdown! Do you listen or do you dance? Whichever, you'll have your shrink on speed dial as you contemplate whether it mocks Jesus to have this much fun, what with the apocalypse being just around the corner and all.

"Amsterdam Throwdown, Kingstreet Showdown! kicks off with the sugar-fix that is "Bon Bon", a dirty, funky concoction, complete with strings. "Galaxy Man" is an outer-space go-go party with Link Wray's corpse on the decks!
