Beat Funktion: Mandy’s Secret

1411911830_beat-funktion-mandys-secret-2014

Coming out with their fourth album amid huge popularity, this swedish jazz band shows no signs of stopping. They are known for their groove and funk heavy style combined with several elements of 60’s and 70’s horn jazz. With this album they delve even more heavily in to the groove/disco sound of the 70’s while drawing primarily from acid jazz sounds produced by Issac Hayes and Herbie Hancock. “I Am the Summer” is a great example of their fascination with idyllic 70’s pop music which they intersperse with improve sax. “Budo” is much more reminiscent of Herbie Hancock’s use of synthesized trumpet, electric guitar which overlay a fast-beat funk track. “Thunderlips” reminds me of a cop-drama…

Listening to You’re Dead is like sitting alone in an empty, circular room while images of death appear and swirl around you, smashing into the other images and combining into a mural of morbid…
