Kraak & Smaak tour North America


Dutch breaks trio Kraak & Smaak will be touring throughout North American this fall.

Wim Plug, Oscar de Jong and Mark Kneppers have taken on a host of collaborators to make the K & S name an umbrella for a formidable live band. And the group will be hitting a number of dates throughout November in the United States and a solitary show in British Columbia to prove it. They'll be touring on the back of their recent Ultra album, Plastic People, which saw the band mix "banjo twang, disco suave synths, hints of a string orchestra, gypsy-tinged clarinet melody and the soulful broken beat." We can't argue with that. Here's hoping for the band's sake that audiences in Lawrence, Kansas can't do so either.
