Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2010-11-22Just telling you that Thunderball's fourth release is on Thievery Corporation's ESL Music Label might give you some idea as to what "12 Mile High" sounds like. Certainly, album opener, "Enter the Brahmin" with its sitar, tabla, and dance beats, could be something from the Thieves themselves. D.C. natives, Thunderball, have more to offer than that, though, on this release. There is the R&B of "Make Your Move", dub on "Dub Science", and the instrumental groove of "Low Down Weather". The best songs here, though, are "I C Colors", which is reminiscent of Curtis Mayfield's "Pusherman", and the cinematic instrumental, "To Catch A Vixen". All in all, I rather like this album of smashing beats and cinematic grooves. Rebecca Ruth
