Erik Sumo Band : Show Me The Light

Allround musician Erik Sumo, who in real life is called Ambrus Tövisházi, successfully introduced himself with his debut album "My Rocky Mountain" five years ago. Back then Pop, Dub, Jazz and Hungarian Folk-elements were crossed with extremely catchy melodies. By now, the Erik Sumo Band is a seven-strong project and the new album "The Trouble Soup" is a bubbling cauldron of great Pop-anthems. Explosive synthesizers, Eastern Bloc-ado, Indie and Progressive in three-minute operas, that could have been penned by the Flaming Lips or the B 52's. It's crystal clear, the Hungarian Pop saga has to be rewritten.
