After their Side One Dummy debut "Strictly Rude", Big D And The Kids Table is back with a brand new album. If you liked he previous effort by these guys, be sure to be completely blown away with this new release. The band\' s sixth full-length record is a mix between a tons of various music genres: hopscotch, double dutch, soul, ska, reggae and punk rock, a little bit differently from the other albums, which were more focused on the ska-punk side.
"Fluent In Stroll" is a record on which every song sounds perfectly just like it is, and it makes you hear how every tune is a possible hit single. Such anthems as "Not Fucking Around", "A Kiss A Week" and the opening track "Doped Up Dollies On A One Way Ticket To Blood" are pure blessings for music lovers: there is the catchy chorus, the melodic parts and the fucking punk rock. Of course, the new direction taken by Big D And The Kids Table might not be fully enjoyed by the old school fans, but this is quite cool as the band does not care about label and keeps on releasing what they like the most. On a side note, the production by Joe Gittleman (The Mighty Mighty Bosstones) and the mixing by Paul Q Kolderie (Radiohead, Dinosaur Jr., Uncle Tupelo) is a guarantee of a great work of art.
If you enjoy good music with no borders, no labels and no fucking arounds, "Fluent In Stroll" is what you need to hear this year.
