Boomkat Product Review:
A Herbaliser LP on a label that isn't Ninja Tune? It's just not right, is it? And yet Jake Wherry and Ollie Teeba have indeed taken time away from their spiritual home with this new set of recordings for K7. The Herbaliser's current sound has moved on considerably from its early days, now embracing a mixture of samples, live vocalists (and presumably live instrumentation in general), making actual songs rather than productions, with plenty going on beyond the beats and scratches. After an initial bout of vocal intrusion, the title track eventually settles down into a piece that's somewhere between Primal Scream's 'Loaded' and a Go! Team instrumental cut. This serves as something of a precursor to the kind of pseudo-vintage sounding funk that dominates the rest of the album, which the label hopes (by their own profession) will crossover into the record collections of Mark Ronson fans, and 'You're Not All That' serves this sort of function. It's not all entirely like that though: you can hear something reminiscent of the slapstick cut and paste of The Avalanches in the inexplicably appealing 'Amores Bongo' and 'Blackwater Drive' lays down some cinematic, mariachi hip hop, but occasionally Same As It Never Was does end up sounding like the incidental music from that TV show Hustle.
