Amoeba Review

Courtesy of Merge Records, Ibibio Sound Machine are positioned as “a clash of African and electronic elements inspired in equal measure by the golden era of West African funk, disco, and modern post-punk and electro.” That’s all fine and dandy, but what does that actually sound like? Better than any band in recent memory, ISM embodies the spirit of another British group: Cymande, the soulful ‘70s collective also of cross-pollinated, trans-Atlantic influences and purveyors of permanently upbeat, blissed out groove. Doko Mien is the epitome of “good vibes only,” with bright horns punctuating a relentless, syncopated disco backbeat courtesy of congos, bongos, various drums, and drum machines. On top of this are Eno Williams’ big, diva-worthy R&B vocals that would sound at home on a ‘80s Chaka Khan or Pointer Sisters record. It all adds up to sustained ecstasy; a multicultural celebration that begins the moment the needle touches the groove and doesn’t stop until the Talking Heads jitter-funk of “Basquiat” completely fades from earshot.
