Ghorar Deem Express
Press 'This recording contains many successful experiments. The harmonic interplay of Koppelman's accordion is particularly interesting... Bergmann's concise arrangements enforce a method to the madness. Check out the Ghorar Deem Express CD for some fine music and adventurous arrangements.' -David Seymour, jazzreviews.com 'The Express really plays some great music, if you think beyond the box.... this style defies styles.... I can't imagine the type of people who would be at a live show of this group.' -Mike Loce, The Noise 'Ghorar Deem Express is quite lush and intricate. The album is vast, challenging, complex, and occasionally messy. There is a pervasive sense of nonsensical whimsy. Active listeners will find this a rewarding and eminently fun album.' -Bonnie Neel, Performer, September 2005 'The 'uncategorizable' quality of Ghorar Deem Express is what gives them their edge, but without being inaccessible to listeners.... A little bit jazz, a little bit hip-hop, a little bit Balkan gypsy rock, Ghorar Deem has the room to take things where they want.' -Rebecca Carter, PULSE 'There are flashes of genius that float up through the aether of the band.' -James McQuiston, Neufutur 'The Amsterdam-born band Ghorar Deem Express mix, among many other things, boppish multi-saxophone melodies, accordion-based Balkan funk, a ska-influenced William Tell Overture...' -Boston Phoenix, August 5, 2005 'Crazed, experimental funk-prog-avant-rock...' -New Haven Advocate, August 2005 'This band does have a lot to offer the experimental music fan. If new and different is your thing, take a ride on the express.' -Stephanie Jowdry, indie-music.com.
