Surge is the best track on this EP, IMO


January 8, 2010

Funki Porcini dives head-first into weirdo jazz with his EP, _Lets See What Carmen Can Do._ And if "Ritmo Di Jazz" sounds like it would be his take on Latin jazz, in a way you could say it is, even if the Latin element is subsumed underneath the speeding up and speeding down playfulness. "Shuffle Sheluvly" sounds much more straightforward, even as the rhythms get all caught up in themselves. But for pure craziness, the title track stands on its own, from the start-and-stop rhythm to the high-pitched squeal that resolves itself into a jazz horn. The samples are weird and seemingly random, but I'll be damned if the track doesn't work somehow. "Surge" sounds almost straightforward in comparison, and "Pete Pete Pete" is a hilarious bit of ridiculousness made up of random movie snippets.
