Druga płyta madryckiej soulowo-funkowej załogi o prowokacyjnej nazwie The Sweet Wandals pomimo licznych odwołań do mistrzów fuzji muzyki soul i funk zza oceanu brzmi świeżo i intrygująco.

Editor's Info:
The secret of the SWEET VANDALS' typical sound lies in the analogue recording technique. This technique creates the pure, warm, honest, soulful sound with a rough and gnarly touch.
All members of the Vandals employ authentic instruments and microphones of the different Soul eras which are recorded and mixed on analogue equipment. That gives their sound and music a consistent and unique signature that can be found throughout the album which they alsomixed at their own 'Funkameba Studios- Analog Heaven".
THE SWEET VANDALS form a perfect symbiosis that creates that spiritual deep funk (Mayka's Gospel experience definitely adds to it) that is typical to the Sweet Vandals' sound. They will decisively play a big role in the future of the genre.
During the last couple of years the groovy funk formation, that always deploys a straightforward, authentic and down-to-earth interaction with their audience, had been restless with performances in Spain, France, Portugal, Switzerland and Germany.'Dirty Club Sound" is what the Vandals call their unique, surpassing sound.
In 2006 the SWEET VANDALS performed at the 'Lovelite' club in Berlin where they met HENRY STORCH - founder of Düsseldorf's legendary Soul, Funk and Groove label Unique Records. The idea for the first record published on Unique records was born. Many of the Vandals' songs could be found on countless compilations before finally in 2007 their debut album 'The Sweet Vandals" was to be published by Unique Records and licensed by Differ-Ant. The album was praised as being one of the roughest, most honest and deepest albums the funk and soul scene has had the pleasure to be part of, alongside with albums of soul goddesses Sharon Jones and Nicole Willis.
Moreover the gig at the 'Lovelite' was such a success that it inspired the band to name their new record after the location - Lovelite - homage to the legendary Vandals' gig in Berlin.
Lovelite is a warm, rough but nevertheless determined piece of music full of energy funk and deep black soul surrounded by a touch of groove. Songs like 'Funky Children' or 'What about Love' seem to reflect the magic of Dusty Springfield in Mayka's voice. Songs like 'Againstupidity' evoke the spirit of Soul- and Funk-godfather James Brown.
'Every Woman Is A Diva' highlights the band's uniqueness and their charming ability of self-irony. Another especially tasty piece of music is 'I Hate To Hate You', structured like a classic Sixties-Motown-Song but decorated with a certain roughness that is typical to the Vandals' sound -raw funk sound which welcomes a brand new brass section!
