Animals As Leaders - The Madness Of Many album review
Tosin Abasi and co conjure more low-end blitzkrieg magic on fourth studio album.
When you press play on an AAL record, you usually know what’s going to launch itself into your lugholes; a blitzkrieg of low-end guitar flurry, gut-unsettling rhythms and jazz-speckled interludes. It’s a potent cocktail, making the Washington trio one of the most spellbinding instrumental outfits around. Don’t expect many deviations on their fourth album The Madness Of Many, however, with the record strutting a familiar path. AAL say it’s their most collaborative effort yet and you can tell, with the taut interplay between the two guitars and drums feeling even more telepathic than usual.
