Vanishing Breed

Between Arrival and Departure AlbumPurchased

Self-praise stinks, but in this case Pingipung have been rather ahead of their time. If we had released this album a few years later, it would probably be recognized on a much larger scale today, looking at the hype around bands such as Vampire Weekend. At the time the songs of "Between Arrival..." were written, in 2004, they indeed seemed slightly weird and geeky in their blend of African folklore and Lofi-electronics. The critics obviously loved it however. Whenever the songs about distance and closeness, leaving and arriving threaten to get too romantic, Holmes manages to shake up the arrangement, constantly challenging us to listen beyond his warm voice and those pleasant Hi-Life guitars. This is one of the rare examples of an album that immediately finds its way into your ear but still have enough surprises on offer after a dozen listens. We bow before this record.
