Cornershop & the Double O Groove Of
Critical Mass
Release Date: March 15, 2011

These wry Anglo-Indian groovemeisters are long past the point of trying to score another "Brimful of Asha" leftfield hit. So they follow up 2009's slept-on Judy Sucks a Lemon for Breakfast with this low-key collaboration featuring newcomer Bubbley Kaur, whose piping vocals nudge Cornershop toward Punjabi folk music. As always, the ramshackle, kitchen-sink beats are well worth sampling: "The 911 Curry," with its chopped-up disco horns, is especially tasty. Minus the mock-heroic guitars, though, frontman Tjinder Singh's globalist critiques lose some of their pop-political punch.
