Boomkat Product Review:
Psychedelic jazz funk from jamie branch and Jason Nazary's Anteloper project, with help from legendary guitarist and former Tortoise member Jeff Parker.
Following 2018's fractal "Kudu", the similarly vivid "Pink Dolphins" takes a familiar approach to jazz. Nazary and branch make music that refuses to root itself in one spot, lurching semi-consciously from hip-hop and dance music into funk, psych rock, prog and jazz. This time around the duo are assisted by Jeff Parker, who was a fan of Anteloper's kitchen sink sound and felt as if he could tweak them into the next tier. Inspired by Miles Davis's "Live Evil", Parker plays a Teo Macero role on "Pink Dolphins", reigning in branch and Nazary's influences but allowing the duo to breathe. branch is influenced by Sun Ra, J Dilla and Mouse on Mars, while Nazary wants his drums to sound like "Confield"-era Autechre.
Whether they manage that exactly is a tough question, but the two friends manage to jerk through ideas and styles with the blotter-damaged effectiveness of The Flaming Lips. They even tip their hats to Tropicalia on the album's lengthy closer 'One Living Genius'.
