Boomkat product review for:

pursuit grooves - Frantically Hopeful

We were well impressed with Pursuit Grooves' 2010 EP Foxtrot Mannerisms, which at the time seemed like an unlikely offering to come from Bristol's dubstep stronghold Tectonic. For her debut album proper (following two self-released CDRs), Frantically Hopeful, the New Yorker seems to have absorbed more obviously UK influences into her grounded future-soul sound, but overall the vibe is firmly in keeping with that of her hometown's musical melting pot. 'Revolutionaries' is the kind of scuffed steppers' house you might expect to come from Pangaea, elevated by Grooves' oak-smoked croon, but it's a deceptive opener, more obviously dancefloor-oriented than what follows. Tracks like 'Type Send Universe' and 'Mars Is Rising' essay the kind of psychedelic boogie-funk styles that will appeal to fans of Dam-Funk, Theo Parrish and Madlib alike, while sub-heavy broken beat numbers 'I Sink' and 'Peace Talks' could almost be warehouse finds from 2000Black. Every track's a winner, if truth be told, but right now we're particularly digging Chicago house homage 'Transformation Of Consciousness' and 'What About', which teams a longing vocal take and French movie dialogue samples with slouchy, sleep-deprived breakbeats. This album is a remarkable achievement, and a big evolutionary leap forward for Pursuit Grooves, with pop nous to match its bold experimentalism. Highly recommended for fans of everything from Alice Coltrane to Urban Tribe.
