Song of the Day 6/29/09: Herbaliser - Geddim!
Herbaliser's range is really quite impressive. Last time we wrote about them, they were pumping out horn-driven pop hits for Same As It never Was, a funk-drenched album that the betterPropaganda crew went ecstatic over for a while. One disc later, "Geddim!" flaunts something more complex and jazzy, recalling the speedy intricacy of all of Herbie Hancock's Watermelon Man. And it still manages to maintain the funky vibe we've all come to adore. Be sure to get your hands on Session 2, out early August - among a crop of bigger names, this is maybe my most anticipated disc since Animal Collective's latest.
