Father's Children, 'Who's Gonna Save the World' (Numero Group)

7
Who's Gonna Save the World
Critical Mass
Release Date: June 21, 2011
Label: Numero Group

by Mike Powell

Numero Group digs deeper into their alternate R&B ?history with this D.C. group, born doo-woppers but rechristened as funky, communal Islamists. Their strength is scope, from downbeat urban misery to ecstatic jams about the comet that will save them from it, similar to the street/space dichotomy explored by mid-'70s Funkadelic. There's no tedious music-biz outrage or claims of lost-classic status in this exhumation -- just the document, simple and dignified.
