Aural Pleasure Review

Antibalas: 'Dirty Money'

Photo: , License: N/A


For an outfit as well-known as Antibalas, it’s ironic that just about no one has listened to one of their records. For most they are “that horn band,” the dudes Tom Waits and TV on the Radio call up when they need a little extra instrumental punch. Dirty Money, the Brooklyn-based 12-piece’s fifth release, is clearly aimed to counter this reputation. The band asserts a more active identity throughout, though this mostly involves adopting more unabashed Fela Kuti worship. Though it won’t quite get them on similar heading with the bands they’ve collaborated with, Dirty Money is solid stuff, guaranteed to add kick to any summer soundtrack.

★★★ ½ (out of 5 stars)
