|MH-246 Curse Ov Dialect - Wooden Tongues
Two years in the making, Curse Ov Dialect return with Wooden Tongues, the follow up to their critically lauded debut Lost In The Real Sky. The matchless vocals of MCs Raceless, Vulk Makedonski, Aturungi, and August 2 are suplimented by the meticulous cuts of DJ Paso Bionic, and their collaborative production efforts utilize samples culled from nearly all members of the United Nations. The album's themes focus on politics, multiculturalism and their recent life experiences. With Wooden Tongues, Curse Ov Dialect have tamed their personal energy and recorded a cohesive group of tracks, while maintaining their sprawling debut's vital excitement and passion.

|For me they're the leaders of the pack here in Australia with their twisted, loopy, multicultural, sampladelic musical montages. This is an album I'll keep on coming back to for sure - right through summer of 06-07. When the cricket gets boring, this will be coming on! I got a taster for this album from the great Symbiotic - Everything Takes Forever compilation - the track "Forget" (different mixes?) appears on both albums. I'm not a huge hiphop fan - I seem to enjoy the hiphop artists that diversify their sound, you know bring in other elements and challenge the often predictable elements of the genre. - Feral Media
