    This EP is one of my favorite releases of 2002. "Shanghai" is a monster shanty with a hypnotic desert groove; heavy bass-lines paired with dead-pan vocals in a timeless electronic frame. The lyrics are about sailors without pity capturing an innocent and the lonely and lost in the harbor theme is omnipresent the whole duration of this release.
    The title track is featured twice - over 9 minutes long on the A Side and in a shorter version which differs only slightly. "Valse Brute" then is actually an instrumental waltz, pushing the seaman's atmosphere with an massive accordion melody even further while "Pasteuse Elegiaque" is more a chill-out ambient piece for the very early morning hours after a night out when all else are asleep.
    Kallabris have the musical craftsmanship, the artistic vision and a sense of finding the balance between humor, entertainment and melancholy that makes them rather unique.
