I shed a tear the first time i heared this album. music like this does not come around very often.

Influences by Miles Davis and Radiohead usually don't mixc this well but this music is certaintly incredible. After listeneing to the drums my mind flowed with rythms i had never thought of (myself being a drummer.) To put in layman's terms this music is musical.

An ice cold Guiness, a phat cigar, feet up while cinematic orchestra and Milkdrop do that thing. The drummer is a master or 7/8 signature.

The acidity of the beats, and the deep Orchestral Bass is bind blowing...Its like

dancing rain in your brain on a dark blue night in Cahrleston...

yeah, fine and dandy bunch of folks, eh? i saw them this summer, was a little uncertain how they'd be live, thot they may be a little lacking outside of the studio, but, nope, they blew the doors off. same incredible beauty, subtlety, complexity, yet punchier. if you get the chance, sell something valuable if need be to see them, it's well worth it. the only problem is, when you find a band as good as this , how do you follow it up? i've been groovin to 'fourtet' and 'thievery corporation', anybody got any other bands that twirl the ol propeller like these guys do? lemme know.

This is a rare jem for modern acid jazz lovers. If you got sick of hearing Bebel Gilbertos remixes, acid jazz bands with one hit on a compilation, or the Kronos Quartet, then here you are. Long tracks, expertly mixed, make a great enviroment for visual artists. Hell, they started the band remaking the soundtrack to the silent film "Man With a Movie Camera"! Smooth, contagious, and building.

I hear they RARELY play live, so see them if you can. Notable tracks include "Channel 1 Suite" and "Burn Out".
Surprising tracks include guests such as Fontella Bass, and Roots Manuva. For the love of god... treat yourself and hear this.
