Boomkat Product Review:
It’s all back to Sam’s for a slice, a beer and a bit of a shuffle on the laid-back Pizza Party, Samiyam’s 2nd album for Stones Throw following Animals Have Feelings  and previous projects with Flying Lotus for Brainfeeder.
The sort of slab one can toss on deck and let play while one builds a zoot or something equally creative and useful, Pizza Party plays it slow and low in 12 well-measured parts, sequenced to suspend your stance somewhere between vertical and horizontal in its viscous whorl of woozy chords and slompy bass peppered with subtle trills like lighters sparking and vibes eazing like smoke in the air.
There are big highlights in the heavy-lidded lean of Jerky and the squashed synth jabs of Pizza Party, plus some proper chunky butt strut in Ruff, and Jonwayne lends a hand on the faded bump ’n shuffle of What Can I Do.
He’s drilled right down to what matters on this one. Primed to play over and again.
