“The Rembetika Hipsters sure know how to play the “Greek Blues”. The music is played in snaky time signatures, which makes for more polyrhythmic blues than its distant American relative. … This is the real deal in rembetika, but features other touches that suggest blues, country and jazz influences that enhance the whole. There’s a definite hurtin’ feeling to Allen Baekeland’s guitar work and Brigitte Dajczer’s expressive violin work. …they play with soul.”
