A slightly tongue-in-cheek bohemia runs through this wigged-outcollective’s latest LP. There is a lot of shoddy material released throughNinja Tune but this can certainly be placed in the context of the moreinteresting artists currently on their roster (see Amon Tobin and Bonoboalso). Live instrumentation is pitted playfully against the label’strademark noodling but this is a more international in its musical visionthan the jazz n’ breaks fodder of their stablemates. Quirky and exotic,this album is a melting pot of downtempo jazz, lilting acoustica andethnic influences coupled with drum and bass inflections, hippysing-alongs and trip hop. The highlights are the beautiful pluckedstrings, skittering rhythms and mangled Eddie Cochrane-esque vocals of‘Fairweather View’ and the bonged-out freeform of Fruit Machine. Momentsof inspiration jossle with the occasional slide into characteristic Ninjaindulgence.
