Is this dress blue and black or gold and white? The internet can't decide and is seriously fighting over it!

Die Melktert Kommissie - Vergewe en Vergeet

2007-10-05 15:53
 


Vergewe en Vergeet is DMK’s third serving and not very different from their previous plateful Wonderwoorde. They’ve clearly figured out what works for them and used the same musical recipe of slow-dance rock guitar blues and platteland pop. They’ve also moved away from the Karen Zoid inspired energetic tracks found on their debut Volroom. In a mixed taal Vergewe en Vergeet poetically talks about falling in-love (“Jy het my hart gedief / Ek pronk vir jou jy kyk vir my”), jealousy (‘Mr. Jealousy’) and falling out of love (‘Vergewe en Vergeet’). The title track is one of the strongest songs on the album, while ‘Thula Thula Suster’ with backing by the Abaqondisi Brothers is just as mesmerising.

Although the album is packed with palatable melodies and sweet soprano lyrics it does lack a strong flavour, similar to well… melktert.

- Annel Malan


Die Melktert Kommissie’s latest album, Vergewe en Vergeet smaak ’n bietjie soos melktert... it’s smooth, easy to digest, slightly sugary and very Afrikaans. But it’s also slightly bland.

On this album the guys have really laid a claim to being a modern successor to the pop-punk throne that used to rule the land and it makes us so happy. Read More »
