340ml - Moving - 340ml - Moving

Dub flavoured, soul flavoured, relaxed but funky, melancholic at times but never depressing, these three boys with their cool names (their vocalist is called Pedro Da Silvo Pinto) float with slightly goofed smiles in their voices through 17 delicious African-tinged tracks.

The themes of journey and humankind's commonality, drift through the music like comforting companions, and the lyrics "340 million people go somewhere every day" are a frequent refrain.

Eclectic rather than inconsistent, 340ml borrow identifiable strands from various styles and weave them together in a bright, soft pattern of sound.

There are a few hits to choose from here - from the rock shaped "Shotgun", to touching, catchy dub love ballads like "Hang onto yourself (Rachel)".

Catchiness is a double edged sword, of course. The song you love today because it's easy to learn could be infuriating when one line is stuck in your head three days later, especially if lyrics like Sometime you will be a supermodel get on your nerves.

340ml can also get a bit too relaxed about their music at times... and drift off into experimental jams that could have been recorded live under the influence for all the production restraint shown.

But there's a chance you'll drift off with them. It's just such pleasantly trippy stuff overall.

Not an album you'll quickly grow tired of, 'Moving' is the kind of collection that demands repeated plays while delivering continued surprises.

340ml come to South Africa from Mocambique, still soaked in the Maputo sun, sounding better than a cold beer opening on a hot day.
