New CameraBoy album focusses on internal affairs.
The enigmatic and elusive CameraBoy releas- es a new album this week, his commentary on the state of the nation and affairs of the heart remains penetratingly astute.
In the wake of 2010’s “RSA” single and 2011’s “Pop 4 Mom”, the 7 track album “Land of Strange Affairs” also takes a sideswipe at the never-ending social and political circus that pass- es for daily life in South Africa. Check out “Cocktails in Clifton”. Love songs are never out of focus for CameraBoy’s observational gaze with a track like “A poem from you” standing out.
Some loyal affiliations are perhaps revealed by the song “Buccaneer” but for the most part, “Land of Strange Affairs” keeps us guessing.
