Hostile Takeover by Spring Tides

6/10 Mingus 29 August 2007
Spring Tides: 'Hostile Takeover' (Blank Tapes), dubbed as "Unreal World Music", the press release says Word but I think it's a typo... first track comes across a tight update on the much imitated of late punk-funk sound with unfathomable African (Ghanaian) lyrics, second track is a melodica & flute led, ahem...melody striding on top of a motorik style groove complete with dubbed out effects. The flip contains a Hot Chip remix of a tune called 'No More Mornings'. Blank Tapes are to be admired for their adventurous (anti) house style that continually shifts goal posts and confounds expectations. So, Punk-funk-electro-motorik/krautrock-free-jazz anyone?!
