- Dirty Money / AWOL by Antibalas
9/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 21 September 2012
Antibalas recently surprised with their super solid self-titled debut on Daptone and here we have the first single. Kinda come the wrong way round but let’s not complain eh?
So, ‘Dirty Money’ is one of the highlights of the LP and sees the crew work up a righteous Fela Kuti rip with a fantastic blend of James Brown’s guitar strums, Fela’s ballsy brass work and the beautifully poly-rhythmic percussion work of Tony Allen. It’s all there. I’ve heard it a thousand times before but it still sounds amazing!
Flip it and we’re treated to an exclusive number entitled ‘Awol’ which is the kinda tune my buddies in Azores would cream over. It’s pure laid back, ultra-confident afrobeat. Again, it’s FELA FELA FELA but it’s no worse for it. Total second wave afro-fun of the finest variety.
