Afrodizz Kif Kif
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Do Right!
It's a sign of this Canadian Afrobeat-funk band's talent that even songs clocking in at over 10 minutes don't drag. But then, with warm vocals, outstanding jazz percussion, tight brass and subtle bass and guitar, it's easier to want more than less from this debut. Inspired by Nigerian godfather Fela Kuti, the Montreal-based group combines consciousness with musicality, as on "Faces," when Vance Payne sings about the importance of, well, doing right shortly before a standout guitar solo. Even the song called "Propaganda" doesn't sacrifice musicianship for polemic-something plenty of conscious artists haven't been able to duplicate.
