Funk Police- Hot We are Funk We Play (2011)
Funk Police's 2011 album, Hot we Are, Funk We Play is exactly how you would expect the album to sound; Funky. Taking notes from The Rapture, Funk Police start out immediately in the groove, and do not let off the gas once throughout the entire album. released on Avant! records, this album has balls. while the lyrics are often hard to understand, they dance between sex and dance. The opening track, back inside you, immediately displays how this bands sound is dripping auditory sex, from the cooing vocals to the cowbell.
From there, the album begins to ride a dance groove out. One reason I enjoyed this so much is their use of repetition. The sounds loop and grow, but never appear to be simply looped or sampled. If you are a fan of the instrumentation of the Rapture, or like the band Liquid Liquid, I suggest you stop by their bandcamp and check this out. It is not to be missed.
