4.0 out of 5 stars Overdue credit to Pork Recording's other big band, 21 Nov. 2002
By 
This review is from: Best Foot Forward (Audio CD)
Baby Mammoth have been doing the downtempo/funk gig as long as anyone, avoiding even the brief flickers of spotlight that occasionally hit Britain's Hull-based Pork Recordings other notables, Fila Brazilla. After six years and as many albums (and numerous remixes) it's finally time for recognition and credit, and what better way than with a mix disc culling hits from past work.
Slow-burning grooves, a sublime sense of stoner funk, old soul samples, and a light sense of playfulness, it's all here for smooth consumption on those lazy, hazy days. Highlights include "Dark Goggles" where shuffle jazz meets X-Files, and the gentle, percolating "Hoodwinked." Or perhaps I should mention the scuzzy jazz of "Tasty Maloney," or the - well, I could go on. Sure there's a dip or two, "Slipping Jigsaws" belongs in b-movie soundtrack purgatory, but that's the price you pay for an album reaching beyond simple navel-gazing.
Distribution, like their press coverage, is spotty at best, but sofa spotters wanting a slice of heaven should dig around for this one. You want to hear what the album-hunters are all talking about, don't you?
