Kerfew- What’s The Time?

July 30th, 2006

A minute into this album and two problems arise. Firstly, the production is quite synthesized. Secondly, Kerfew’s accent isn’t exactly what you’d expect from someone born in Leicester, frequently slipping into an American twang. The lyrics and energy is on point though, and the album goes on to provide a few entertaining moments such as the politically natured ‘3rd World’ which includes some atmospheric singing and keys. ‘Bhangra Song’ is another key moment, providing what it says on the tin. ‘Baby Father’ begins with some corny samples of the artist’s kid talking but the intent of the track is sweet. This wont be wowing people anytime soon, but for an independent debut album, it’s not too bad.
