Whilst their first LP, ‘Songs for my Funeral’, was full of
hip hop and beat influences, the second, ‘The Garden’, revealed Nostalgia
77’s mastermind (Ben Lamdin) serious intentions as a jazz musician, composer
and arranger. ‘Weapons of Jazz Destruction’ takes things further in this
direction. Where ‘The Garden’ featured a willfully rough and ready recording
style with nods to afrofunk and soul including the attention grabbing cover
of “Seven Nation Army” with Alice Russell, this latest album is a much
smoother and more polished production and sits firmly in the jazz arena. The
Fender Rhodes has been replaced throughout by piano giving the whole record a
more classic sound and, as always, the horn arrangements are outstanding.
The overall feeling is melancholic, bringing in Ethiopian modal jazz
influences into tracks like “Musical Silt”, and Spanish melodies in the
opening track “Chola”. This unique blend of heavy funk, hip-hop based beats,
dusty old jazz, obscuro funk and psych bits and pieces should be appealing
for the old school and the NuJazz heads alike.

REDRUM is the nonelectronic sidegroup of DRUM
since we felt that we have more to contribute than
electronic music. Enjoy :)
