Ophir Kutiel's eponymous debut could have you fetching for bell-bottoms and platform shoes. Though the music comes by way of Tel Aviv instead of Woodstock, Kutiel, with assistance and inspiration from musical partner-in-crime DJ Saboo, has crafted an album worthy of those expressive, free-spirited days of flower-power lore. "No Reason For You" is awash in organic psychedelica with crackling electric guitar bits. "Losing It" deftly combines hard-edge funk and Afrobeat rhythms for a seamless blend that goes down like buttah. Go ahead, take that ride into the mutherfunkin' universe. Just don't forget those shoes.
