I first saw Kahuna oooohhh at the end of 2002 supporting Royksopp (whose album I hope you all have!) , and again supporting Dirty Vegas in march this year. Their live act is fantastic, they always manage to get people bouncing all over the place, or nodding their heads in appreciation to the downbeat tracks.
Anyway, this album reminds me a bit of Layo & bushwacka's Night Works. It has that same mixed bag vibe, it combines hard up, bass heavy, rockin' dance tracks, like Microcuts, and the smackhead tune Glitterball, with chillout excursions a la hayling, north pole transmission and fear of guitars. The rest are, well, kinda weird. No wait, make that experimental. The tracks may be weird but theyre a lot of fun, greeat to listen to and funky too.
The album flows well between tracks, but my only problem is 'Growler' which is an OK track but it drags on for way toolong, and doesnt really do anything, which is a shame as its right in the middle of the album and holds it all up. Oh well, not even that can drag it down from 5 stars. Go buy if you like Dirty Vegas, Royksopp, and maybe even Underworld, the Chems etc.
