Van Coke Kartel’s Energie EP proves they can rock other material too

I distinctly remember nodding in agreement at a recent festival where BCUC exclaimed from the stage: “Real rock stars don’t do covers.” However, I’m sure that after 7 years, 5 albums, and many awards (including a SAMA) Van Coke Kartel has earned their rock star stripes. In fact, my biggest criticism on their previous releases was that it was too much of the same. In fact, I had hoped very hard that they would break out and do something completely unexpected and different. And now they have, with their new cover EP, Energie.
