Music: Asian Dub Foundation UNDER THE INFLUENCE / Chemical Brothers NO GEOGRAPHY
Asian Dub Foundation UNDER THE INFLUENCE
An odd melding of bhangra, Asian dub, hip hop, chill… you get the idea. It reminded me, in an odd way, of a lot of different things: Public Enemy, any one of a thousand Reggae bands, Beastie Boys... Competently made, but just sort of uninspiring. Okay… not great.
Chemical Brothers NO GEOGRAPHY
Super upbeat - Vocals are weak, but the energy is undeniable. The music drags a little in the middle (it’s a tad repetitive… and a little dubby), but… these guys are pros and never let the proceedings lag too much. A solid record which I added to my Afternoon Playlist after hearing it.
