Fat Freddy's Drop present to you a new MARVEL in Kiwi music!

Dr. Boondigga & The Big BW

Now, i've always been a big fan of Fat Freddy's Drop's first album Based on a True Story because of its slow dub/reggae/mellow kinda feel to it. If I smoked weed this would probably be the best album to do it to i guess (other than DSoTM). The music was always really well put together and well written, plus arranged cleverly with no track under 5 minutes yet without it sounding repetitive. When I heard they were recording a new album, I just couldn't wait.

Today I decided to hop on over to FFD's website to check on the progress and what do ya know? It's been released! They even have a sampler of all the tunes. I listened to them and it seems they have gone it quite a new direction indeed.

It appears they have become more jazz/hip hop influenced with more synthesized basslines and extended chords giving a (relatively) more upbeat feel to the album.

Obviously I can't fully comment on the style not having heard it start to finish, but after the sampler I am excited to find they still maintain a good standard.

listening to the samples i'd say they've gone from jazzier feel to more reggae/dub

it reminds me a lot of a few other new zealand groups, i'll comment more later

I've heard the whole cd, its not as easily accessible as the first one but after a few listens you can appreciate it more. I like it quite a bit.
