By Dan Mohr on July 7, 2005
Format: Audio CD
This EP is an experimental performance between Elisabeth Esselink (aka Solex) and the large jazz group Maarten Altena Ensemble. It is not comprised of pop material but rather focuses on the odd, dissonant sounds and off-kilter time signatures of Esselink's further-out-there material. However, the entire EP is worth the price for the combo's covering of the utterly winning pop ditty "Birthday Superboy" (aka "Chris The Birthday Boy" from Solex's Pick Up LP for Matador); the arrangement here is even prettier, livelier and more weirdly touching than the original album version, and is definitely among the most enjoyable track recordings Solex has ever done. (Imagine a big-band toe-tapper written for the Muppet Show and you're almost there.) When Solex is at her best, she delivers the finest qualities of Bjork's pop music without the affectation or pretense, just sheer giddy musical charm and infectiousness.

This is a very interesting album, not just because we get to hear early/experimental versions of Solex songs, but because they all have an acoustic sound. Hearing Solex sing versions of her songs that she doesn't mix electronically is almost shocking, and the album can be very fun at times--it's almost a shame it's over so soon. Problem is, this isn't accessible to newbies. It's doubtful if non-fans would even find the album tolerable. Newbies should definitely stick to "Solex Vs the Hitmeister" and "Pick Up."
