Rebellum (BurntSugar Arkestra) —
Darknuss ... CD BurntSugar/Avantgroidd, 2014. New Copy ...
A blistering blend of righteous sounds, funky jazz, and knowledge – very much in the best BurntSugar tradition, but served up here by their Rebellum offshoot! Lyrics and beats are from the mighty Greg Tate – and definitely reflect his long connection to progressive cultural experiments – but the full sound is a heady brew of saxes, drums, and guitar from the group – plus plenty of guests on added instrumentation and vocals as well. The whole thing's got a very collaborative vibe – in the best BurntSugar tradition – and titles include "Spankalick", "Guelph", "Young Fankenstank", "Heartseed", "Trelle To The Lew", "Somebody To Love You", "Ten Times Left", and "Chains & Water/No Coloureds Allowed".
