BLUES FOR THE WHITE NIGGER

MK-O BLUES FOR THE WHITE NIGGER

 

3rd album: BLUES FOR THE WHITE NIGGER is a substantial breakthrough for MK-O.

While keeping their unique characteristics, they “dare” an album broadening their pursues. This is an updated concept album made of timeless ingredients such as blues, (white) funk but always with MK-O originality. BLUES FOR THE WHITE NIGGER is more outgoing than their previous albums with electronic funk dynamites: “Blackface”, shades of blue: “White Nigger Blue” and powerful singles: “Star With No Name”. Their imaginative harmony and [their resourcefulness in] inventive melodic production are present here as in their previous albums. Aspects that awarded them public & critics recognition [“Ovation” was voted in the top 20 greek albums of the past decade]. The lyrics here -even though written a couple of years ago- have a prophetic twist. A few years back they may have seemed exaggerated but they prove to be -unfortunately- very true today.

Released April 6th, 2011 by Puzzlemusik.
Recorded and mastered at Artracks Recording Studios by George Priniotakis

MK-O is Marina Kanavaki & Oannes The acquaintance of the two musicians in 2000, led to a fruitful collaboration. The first outcome of this was the rearranged version of Marina’s first album “Pote & Tipota” , in 2004 . Today, as a duet [MK-O], are working on a series of albums, first of which was OVATION, their debut album, released in December 2006 by Hitch-Hyke. The multitude of musical influences and the broad working field creates an adventurous listening, hard to categorize. Extended instrumental arrangements coexist with lyrical songs. Rock, classical, techno, psychedelia, industrial, acoustic, electric and electronic instruments as well as a palette of samples varying from from Cesar Franck to Son House, Pink Floyd and Ministry, give a brief idea of the sound of this album. Ovation has been welcomed enthusiastically by the greek press & audience. Their second 2CD album UNREEL was released October 13th 2008 by Hitch Hyke. BLUES FOR THE WHITE NIGGER is their third album, released April 2011 by Puzzlemusik. 4th album, ΑΙΘΕΡΑΣ [Ether] was released March 2015.
