Editorial Reviews

This record owes as much to Can, Eno, and MIA as it does to Kuti, Francis Bebey, and Funkadelic. There's no loss of steam as this Michigan collective incorporates new influences. NOMO breaks through with a matured and developed sound that's fully their own. They've shared stages with Earth Wind And Fire, Konono No. 1, Sharon Jones, and Dan Deacon. RIYL: Konono No. 1, Can, Fela Kuti, Charles Mingus, MIA, Radiohead.

Format: Audio CD
NOMO's previous effort, the brilliant New Tones, relishes in a swaggering "live" shuffle of acoustic percussion, tape-bleed, shimmying horns and lugubrious tempos. This time around, the band tightens up those loose ends, harnessing the rhythms into edited sequences, boosting the tempos, injecting more Funk into the mix and largely eschews the Balinese gamelan-like feel in favor of electric mbiras. Compare and contrast aside, how is it? The prominent horn section is still spot-on and a bit more mature, showcasing virtuosity across the disc, but the draw of this band, that which gives their music a unique, compelling and immediately gratifying personality, has always been the organic, raw nature - the occasional stray note and all. Perhaps these are live jams translated in the studio, but the dancier (more East African than Carl Craig), more mechanical nature is something fans will need to acclimate to. Not worse, not better: just different. Let it stew for a bit.

...that mixes everything that other reviewers have mentioned (afropop, krautrock) but manages to do so in a relatively concise, catchy manner. I am not sure - yet - if I like this as much as the last LP, "New Tones," but I like it alot.

If you liked that last album, or their hard-to-find first LP, definitely pick this up. Their sound has gotten a bit more varied but that is by no means a bad thing.

Recommended for fans of Talking Heads, David Byrne, Fela Kuti, Animal Collective, Panda Bear, etc, etc.

I heard the interview on NPR and was excited about the group. I bought the CD and it was odd rather than exciting.
