[norbu11] kalope & droog – first holiday special

01. kalope – donner und blitzen (7:44)
02. droog – jelka, not helen (10:56)
- full release + cover (.zip)

As we settle with the octal tradition and always in tune with the holiday spirit, we are proud to bring you yet another epic holiday-themed release. After a serious reviewing phase, we chose these tracks as the most fitting for this joyous release.

What can we say about lovely Donner und Blitzen that’s not known already? This lovely reindeer duo, always cheerful and ready for holidays as honestly depicted on the cover, is all about freedom and harmonious living with the woodland creatures. While free from the fat bearded tyrant, their dysfunction with nature will always remain, as obvious in this Kalope track. This dysfunctional duo set on to make a name for themselves. Their brief Hollywood stint ended when they were rejected at a Cats audition for reindeer in Broadway for jet-set reindeer community.

Eleanor, while always the theme of popular folk songs, was rarely referred by her true name in the community of Televisa. Her friend, Helen, always felt like a Jelka inside. Nobody ever understood this, but she devoted her life to Mexican freestyle swimming. Together with Sasha, Helen formed an alliance. Alas, Sasha would never deliver her promise, for her true love for Eleanor was never fullfilled. Sasha never knew the horrible truth about her arch-nemesis, Jelka. Jelka was indeed Eleanor, and Eleanor was Helen, but Helen was Sasha’s aunt. But they never knew it until today. This truly disturbing split personality disorder story shall go down as one of the most intriguing Norbu concepts Droog ever put to plucked themes.

Merry holiday and a happy new year!
