Editorial Reviews

Review

When "Fear of Guitars," the oceanic swirl of atmosphere and stoned vocals reminiscent of new-school shoegazers the Doves channeling Kid A segues into the buzzing electro bleat of "Glitterball," it’s readily apparent that we’re in for a really freaky fun ride.

The British duo of Dan Ormondroyd and Jon Nowell have been making a musical scene since the mid’90s, when they held court over a raucous roaming London party called the Big Kahuna Burger. But once they woke up from three years of madness, a new direction towards sicker electronic manipulations led to a new club (Headstart) and a new sound, a druggy amalgamation of brutal beats and classic acid, referencing early Warp acts like LFO just as readily as DJ Pierre and, erm, the Charlatans. On Machine Says Yes, they pay homage to all of the above, from the old-school bleep of "Growler" to the creepy monotone pulse of "Nothing is Wrong," complete with totally bored robotic female vocals. And although it fits nicely into what’s considered "electro-clash," songs like these have much more bump and grind that a majority of that lot.

They switch gears nicely into the smooth, dulcet tones of "Hayling," a cool downtempo dalliance that flits somewhere between Zero 7 and Air. Even your mom will find this one relaxing.

But the bulk of Machine Says Yes is thick with throbbing dance floor throw-downs like "Mindset to Cycle" and Tiga’s DJ-ready remix of the title cut, which wraps the whole thing up with a nice big red bow.

Lots of funky very origional electronic music.

This is great for vegging out and just relaxing in a recliner and taking some time away from the buzz of the outdoors and ho-hum of the indoors.

I must say the rest of the album doesn't fail either, there is SO much variety.

By all rights this album should make FC Kahuna superstars, as there's always need for a crossover dance band, someone able to meld widescreen ideas to huge block rockin' beats. Much like their predecessors Daft Punk, the Chemical Brothers, and Underworld, Kahuna's Dan Ormondroyd and Jon Nowell offer ample amounts of energy, packing Machines Say Yes with buzzing, fuzzy basslines, a shelf load of techno bleeps, and grinding, glittering funk to irresistible effect.
That formula alone carries streamlined tracks Nothing is Wrong, Microcuts, and Machine Says Yes, the latter aided by Gus Gus vocal gal Hafdis Huld into surefire hit territory. Hayling's the melancholy media darling, where her soft vocals ride on icy blips ping-ponging about. Even better, country collaborator Eileen Rose offers the emotional heart to this album, North Pole Transmission's poetic vocals given a machine serenade; computerized accompaniment that's stunningly heartfelt, and a strong statement to the duo's diversity.
Now add propulsive blast Glitterball, which clearly is a big, huge, dancehall tune chucked with laser blasts and big whooshes for club craziness, and you have one of the electronic albums of the year. Wisely this domestic release sticks the clunker Growler and a pointless bonus track at the end; you'll be satisfied way before you get there.

I first heard "Hayling" on the show Fastlane and went looking or the song. To my surprise the entire CD is excellent. If you are a techno?industrial/DJ fan, you will love this CD. I am disappointed that I cannot find more music by this artist.

I buy a lot of CD's, all genres. Dance/trance/electronic usually bores me quickly. I heard "Nothing is Wrong" on XM radio, checked out some other tracks online, fell in love, and bought the CD online instantly. Lots of funky very origional electronic music. Reminds me of Underworld and Moby in its ability to stand out from the crowd in origionality and excellence. I can't stop listening to this CD.

Debut album from Dan Ormondroyd and Jon Nowell, better known as FC Kahuna. Hailing from Leeds, these longtime mates signed up with Norman Cook's Skint record label.

Tracks like "Glitterball", "Nothing is Wrong", "Bleep Freak" and "Microcuts" are sure to get you moving on the dancefloor. Without doubt, the highlight track for me is the electro-stomper "Mindset to Cycle". Mind you, there's nothing wrong with the slower tracks....

Certain tracks come across as slightly cheesy, some have a retro-synth feel to them. Couple of tracks could pass off as works from DFA or Chemical Brothers. Others, well... they just make you want to bop about. Dancefloor devastation....

Taken in it's entirety, this album is a fantastic piece of work. But then again, who am i to judge? All i know is i like it.

Thanks to my local shop for putting this one in their CD sampler. Halfway through Heyling, and I've dropped the headphones and headed to the register. What a great track. The rest is a funkadelic stretch that you'll want to listen to in its entirety. Great beats, fresh nuances, and all-around fun.

Hayling is the best track on this album and if you hear it you will purchase this album. Each song is so different from the last but in a good way. Highlight tracks are Hayling, Glitterball, Fear Of Guitars and Machine Says Yes. If you want cutting edge electronica purchase this album.

This is one of those albums that grows on you after time. Glitterball kicks ass the first time you hear it, but then as you play it more, Machine says yes and both Hayling mixes really start to shine. The Dunk! mix is particulary interesting and playful. The other songs are pretty good, except Growler has a really annoying sample that ruins it. All in all it is a solid piece of work.
