I do apologise for the silence. I had to deal with some things that could not be avoided. But I’m back with a brand new review from summer 196. Quick recap: Summer 196 is my crazy idea to get at least one review from all the countries in the world this year. So far, so good. Check out the other reviews HERE.
The first time I met Black Porcelain (Carol Mashigo) we where working on a project called Golden Arrow Magazine circa 2009. I could quickly tell this lady means business and her album Invincible Summer takes you on a journey filled with Afro Nu-Jazz, soul melodies and lets not forget that healthy helping of no nonsense lyrics.
What Black Porcelain managed to include are all of her self-motivated influences, which gave the album depth and a bird’s eye view into the past three years of her life. Due to this true-life aspect most of the songs where melancholy of timbre but after reading the CD sleeve it put things quickly into perspective.
“Slip” featuring Richard the Third was a brave metamorphosis and one she pulled of successfully. This is my favorite track and shortlisted on my iTunes Library.
Miss B P continues to voice the things we wish to say. Much love. A
