Award-winners in their native South Korea, Jambinai’s debut LP Differance now gets its first U.K. vinyl release. The scope of their sound is vast, shifting from Eno-esque etherealities and throbbing drone to harmonica-led rumbles that are pitched somewhere between lights-low Dylan and a drunk-at-the-wheel Augustus Pablo.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 14th March 2018
I stumbled across Jambinai in a SXSW lineup, unfortunately my knowledge of the band doesn't extend beyond the fact that they're Korean and they rock. The traditional Korean string instruments are incredibly versatile in this post-rock/metal album, ranging from delicate, minimalistic ethereal moments to sonic assaults when they are crunched through distortion pedals. It is worth listening to the album as a whole. I really love hearing unique, traditional folk instruments utilised in a completely different way.
