Extra Golden-Thank You Very Quickly

Extra Golden Thank You Very Quickly:

The funky grooves found on this album, could wake someone from a coma, and get their ass grooving, right there in the hospital. The group consists of an ethno-musicologist some Chicago based musicians and some Kenyan musicians who specialize in a musical style known as benga. The resulting sound reminds me of latter day Talking Heads, but more fluid and jammy. The vocals are enthusiastically chanted, and whether or not the lyrics are good (I don’t have the slightest idea what they’re saying) they are sung amazingly well and with conviction. This album is fun and funky in the best ways possible.

Parliament-Up For The Down Stroke

Parliament Up For The Down Stroke:

Doo-wop vocals, funky guitars, horny horns. Lets not forget crazy lyrics, interesting song structures, and amazing improv. Though not as fully awe inspiring as they would become, this album still turns heads and can make even the most introverted wallflower want to shake their ass.
