Finally, The Hamsters came out of hibernation! After their first critically acclaimed EP, they relaesed the first full album ‘Small Zoo’ (W.E.R.F.).
The band-spirit is clearly noticable on ‘Small Zoo’: somewhere between furious and classical; or better... a hybridization between a hamster and a panther. The record really sounds like the band sounds live on stage: energetic, unpolished jazz with a nice portion of humour. Always a party to see and hear this five musicians!
