On his 2012 album The Princess, Parov Stelar consequently advances his unmistakable style. He also prolongs one of the most amazing success stories of the past years.
The Princess perfectly sums up Parov Stelar's musical development without neglecting his roots. More than ever, he takes his time to make every single track a short story filled with ideas nicely fitting his "anything goes" attitude.
Most of the tracks to be found on disc one mirror a special, highly emotional and reminiscing undertone carried by the piano and yearning live/sampled vocals. Standout tunes like "You Got Me There" and opening track "Milla's Dream" provide equally cinematic qualities. To wrap things up, disc one includes soul pop anthem "Nobody's Fool" featuring live-band singer, Cleo Panther.
Disc two, however, offers a collection of yet unreleased or vinyl-only releases that, in comparison, turn it up a notch speedwise. Just take the upfront single "Booty Swing" whose hypnotic trumpets and burlesque stylings have already caused quite a stir in America. And then there's "Jimmy's Gang", one of those agitating, bass-heavy electro-swing songs that cause no less than good clean fun and established Parov Stelar as a pinnacle of this exciting new genre. At the same time, disc two contains a number of Parov Stelar live-band and trio performances, making The Princess a comprehensive exhibition of Parov Stelars ecclectic oeuvre.
