Album Review
DJ Muscat
Reviewed 2015-04-23 
Genre: afrobeat, psych

UK group fuses elements from all over the world to make a tremendous, playful record of psych-rock. Gives me the same spin-tingling feeling as when I first listened to Goat. Shares members with the equally excellent (but slightly more jazzy) Melt Yourself Down. One of those albums that you can’t listen to without cracking a smile.

P.S. we have a vinyl single of theirs in the music office somewhere…awesome wild stuff

Others: Melt Yourself Down, Lumerians, Goat, Wildbirds & Peacedrums, Deerhoof (minus Satomi)

Favorites: 2, 1, 3, 8, 6, 7. FCC: 9.

1. (5:22) *** Spoken Mauritian-Creole intro then krauty groove. High energy and infectious.
2. (3:39) *** Big ascending riff and magnetic vocals. One of the most compact and immediately catchy tracks.
3. (3:20) *** Sexy, dark. Just what the proverbial doctor ordered.
4. (5:19) Starts all delicate and spacey before getting some riffs, and I mean capital-R riffs. Has a bit of a Led-Zeppelin feel, but maybe that’s just me…
5. (5:05) Laid back afro-funk feel. Cool mini piano solo.
6. (2:57) *** Oh this is a fun one. Add this to the carefully curated non top 40 playlist for your next party.
7. (4:06) ** Mid. More great stuff.
8. (5:54) *** Locked in metallic groove. Fast, energetic pace. Weird vocal inflections…I like it.
9. (6:13) FCC Instrumental gives me a slight mysterious, Tinariwen type feel. Lyrically my favorite song.
