...opening track ‘Murder Dubb’s is closer to lounge funk than space rock; it’s more Lalo Schriffrin than Hawkwind. The keys are pure 70s cop show and the bass is more seductive than the Cadbury’s Caramel Bunny. The drums are crisp and bracing and there’s even scratchy guitars in there too. It’s slick, it’s cool and it’s the kind of retro funk the Beastie Boys kept trying to do.
‘Turiya’ offers tinkling tinkling bass and jazzy drumming over keyboard drones. At around the 4 minute marks is begins to reveal itself into a more cohesive whole, albeit still resembling a trippy light show of a neon lava lamp. Stoner jazz?
‘Hook For An Eye’ starts with Hollywood movie trailer swells over a propulsive drum beat and 70s keyboard riffs. Atmospheric and danceable, this is the most accessible track on the album and the most likely to win approval at gigs. But there are still the trademark synth soundscapes building a world of weird wonder in the near distance.
