PRESS

press clippings on our previous albums:

“Weird and wonderful enough to make you stop whatever you are doing, in order to seek out everything the band has recorded.”

New York Press (US)

“une révélation Néerlandais"

Liberation (FR)

“The Dutch of Alamo Race Track have enough of Fleet Foxes and Mumford and Sons, they have studied the incredibly songs of wry and strings”

Rolling Stone (DE)

“Combining elements of indie, folk and pop, Alamo Race Track are ready to take the US by storm with their hooky goodness,”

FILTER (US)

“Playful & dreamy, songs full of gentle Acid- and Freakfolk ingredients.”

Eclipsed Magazine (DE)

“The four guys create a classy and tight rock sound brimming with references: Radiohead, XTC, Joy Division, and Television, to name a few. Such influences are, however, assimilated and re-assembled with enormous skill and success—especially the superb arrangements, which give each piece a certain depth.”

Le Blogotheque (Vincent Moon)

“Mercury Rev & Fleet Foxes as well as fans of Neil Young’s softer records should be thrilled!”

PIRANHA Magazin (DE)

“Fleet Foxes or Other Lives couldn’t do it better!”

Frizz! Magazin (DE)

intelligente pop met eindeloze verbeeldingskracht, zo rijk en avontuurlijk als popmuziek kan zijn. *****

de Volkskrant

“The Dutch quartet confirm their rise”

Le Monde (FR)

“Brilliant songs, enchanting voices. Perfect autumn music!”

Guitar Magazine (DE)

“Songs like ‘The Moon Rides High’ are genuine folk anthems.”

Visions Magazine (DE)

"a calm and cool pop album with just enough tendency to rock that you never quite grow bored"

Tripwire (US)

“Cast a glum spell that is hard to shake”

Spin (US)

Het beste dat Alamo Race Track tot nu heeft gemaakt en een reuze sprong in hun oeuvre. Het lange wachten meer dan waard.****

het Parool (NL)

probably the catchiest groups you'll discover.

Slug Mag (US)

THEATRE

SWAN LAKE

Theatre-director Jakop Ahlbom is to make his first full night’s dance performance: Swan Lake. Based on the classic ‘Swan Lake’, of which numerous world famous versions already exist. Jakop, however, radically bends the work to his own will, as regards the storyline, the choreography and the music, too. Moreover, once again he will be working with Alamo Race Track. They transform the original music into their own characteristic style influenced by indie, folk and pop. They will also compose new work for Swan Lake. Swan Lake by Jakop Ahlbom and ICKamsterdam is a modern translation of ‘Swan Lake’ and a free interpretation of the original fairy tale. Central to this adaptation is the destructive force of love. How do we deal with love in all its purity, but also its duplicity? Jakop is interested in the dilemma of the kind of people we want to be vs. the people we sometimes have to be and will be. How do we stay close to ourselves in our yearning for the other and in our desire for perfection? Swan Lake is an associative narrative in which the characters become aware of their darker sides and the fact that love doesn’t conquer all and that a human being cannot belie its own fundamental nature.
