The Whitefield Brothers, 'Earthology' (Now-Again)

5
Earthology
Critical Mass
Label: Now-Again

by Mosi Reeves

Jan and Max Weissenfeldt are part of a German collective that has released late-'60s-inspired raw-funk excursions under an array of pseudonyms (Poets of Rhythm, Karl Hector) for the past decade-plus. On Earthology, their second album as the Whitefield Brothers, they journey into Afrobeat, exotica, and fusion. While some of the instrumental workouts (like "Safari Strut") are loose and inspired, it takes a handful of appearances from backpack-friendly rappers Percee P ("Reverse") and Mr. Lif ("The Gift") to keep Earthology from fading into lava-lamp background grooviness.
