Lifesavas Gutterfly: The Original Soundtrack
- Words: David Ma
- Label: Quannum
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
The Lifesavas' new project transports you into a '70s car-chase sequence. Gutterfly, an unfinished blaxpoitation film, is resurrected sonically with thoughtful MCs and powerhouse beats. With Camp-Lo, Butterfly (of Digable Planets), and Dead Prez on board, this hypothetical movie soundtrack is soaked in funk and attitude-part contemporary rap, part '70s throwback. Like most of these 15 tracks, numbers like "Take Me Away" and "Shine Language" combine smooth grooves, thick basslines, and swift vocals. And with an appearance by George Clinton, you know things are funky. Recommended.
