An Estonian indie classic originally released on cassette only, Cafe De Flor by Bizarre is a gorgeous collection of dreampop and trip-hop featuring intimate, often whispered or spoken vocals, heavily processed guitars, percussion, and a diverse set of samples from The Reality Brothers, Sly & The Family Stone, Marta Sebestyen, and Mickey Heart. Opener “Mona On Snow” is a clear highlight… Built on an esoteric ragga hip-hop sample, the track somehow bounces, floats, and stutters all at once with the sampled sounds, voices, and instruments blending seamlessly together. Recommended for fans of Boards of Canada, Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, etc.
