Released On: Nov 07, 2006
Released By: Nublu
Wax Poetic Copenhagen is the first part in a three-part series of records from the Nublu founder and bandleader Ilhan Ersahin's Wax Poetic project. Where Wax Poetic's last release saw Ersahin collaborating with Brazilian Girls, Norah Jones, N'dea Davenport and Saul Williams, Wax Poetic Copenhagen sees him taking a more singular approach, with vocalist Marla Turner as the main focus of the record and a subdued Northern European energy creeping through the rocky, Garbage-esque tracks. Wax Poetic Copenhagen is the first album in a series that will take Ersahin to different countries to collaborate with its musicians. Next up Wax Poetic Istanbul followed by Wax Poetic Brasil.
