Same babe - Vražji bend

Same babe band have always seen ironically melodramatic, quite folksy and just the right kind of gravelly; like a battered cart track that cannot decide if it leads from the village to the town or vice versa. Even the poet Ervin Fritz knew all along that they were Devil’s band. And he was not mistaken.
Same babe do not switch styles only between the songs, but are able to perform sudden genre shuffling within one song. We can only guess how much of a cogent reflection regarding arrangements is behind it all, and how much is it left to the spontaneous artistic impulses.
It is becoming increasingly apparent that Same babe are creating their own genre, named after the group itself, stemming from blues, jazz, cabaret, rock, mariachi, folk/trad music, chanson with all the accompanying mythologies, everything in between and more.
Same babe effortlessly connect endless list of genres with their own songwriting instincts, switching between mainstream and experiment. The result is a diverse album, aiming to deconstructing monotony or virtuoso boredom, which we often face in this kind of genre jungle.
