Super Numrei Great Aviaries
- Words: Heath K. Hignight
- Label: Ninja Tune
Super Numeri follows in the line of Funki Porcini and Neotropic-brilliant Ninja Tune groups that likely will remain under the radar because people just won't get it. Super Numeri's particular flavor confronts you on the first few seconds of the album: dreamy, luscious guitar. The execution is as heartfelt as Vini Reilly's muted brazenness, the atmosphere as humid and jazzy as another largely unsung group, 33.3 on Aesthetics. Great Aviaries summons magical, fluid melodies that range from synth opera tendencies ("Sundials") to harp-toned neo-funk ("The Ember Love") to full-on vibraphone lounge jamming ("Classic British Ponds"). Find it, please!
