Synopsis

Album Description
Their second full-length is a freaky conflation of dance music, like a 31-flavor ice cream social on a hot summer's day where bongos and subs keep time for a gaggle of face-painters, genies, and roller-queens, but it's more about lifestyle than any generic allegiance or retro revivalism. The band calls it "body music". "Kings And Queens" makes nods to disco, house, and pop, as well as what the band members heard around them on the streets, in parks, and in clubs. Equally present are Chicago-style horns, R&B falsetto, Latino percussion, and bass lines with more soul than a gospel choir. Produced by Abel Garabaldi, engineer for R. Kelly, Fat Joe, Ciara, and Britney Spears.

Far-Out , Out-of-sight and Dynamite CD
Elmer Rosario | Springfield, VA | 02/22/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is awesome. The musics in these cd brings back the reminiscing of the 70's. As you listen to the pulsating techno groove sounds of saxs and congo, it reminds me the beats of The Gap Band and The Earth, Wind and Fire roll into one. Especially the last song called Shapes and Sizes, it makes you feel like dusting your old disco shoes and put on your old polyester white suit and dance like JT."
