Amoeba Review

09/15/2013

Elvis & The Roots team up for a taut, funky and altogether menacing record of skittering neo-soul, with dubby elements recalling the Clash and even moments of Big Audio Dynamite. Both acts are avid and public music fans, and their record collections are on display here, with cinematic strings and proto-Wu-Tang syncopation belying an investment in the socially conscious strutting urban soul of the mid-'70s and the tight purposeful grit of a sound like Muscle Shoals.
