A Becker This whole album is filled with a wonderful energetic quality while also being unobtrusive in a way that makes it easy to focus on work or reading.
The standout track for me is March of the Idiots. Future Ancestors is excellent as well.
The whole thing inspires me to think of it as the soundtrack to some movie from the 1970s. Favorite track: March Of The Idiots.

John Cratchley Energetic and punchy second album...I played their first eponymous album a lot too...
Great blowing, no frills,solid joy from first note to last...it doesn't seek to hide its influences; only celebrate them.

Carsten Pieper "Cosmic afrobeat" someone wrote which hits the point. Strong horn section, driving rhythms, far-out dubby effects. Wonderful album! Favorite track: Future Ancestors.

Moni Forward-leaning afrobeat infused with otherworldly sounds and strongly rooted in the structure of Fela. Tunes to be savored. Favorite track: New Frontiers.

Ariya Astrobeat Arkestraare back with their second album 'Towards Other Worlds'. The UK- based 9 piece have built on the success of their debut album, described byBBC Radio 2's Jamie Cullums one of his 'sounds and albums of 2010'.Afrobeat'sinimitable rhythm and language is evident and the bandalso owes part of their sound to thespace jazzpioneers of the 70s and thefree jazztrailblazers of the 60s. Towards Other Worlds explores this diverse blueprint, taking in drivingafro-funk, spiritual jazz,and Mulatu-esque Ethio-jazz.Built around a quote of the Sun-Ra film 'Space Is The Place' the album is split into two halves - the first represents Earth and it's 'sounds of guns, anger, frustration' whilst the second is couched in the cosmos, where 'the vibrations are different', leading to a more progressive, peaceful sound.
