Creeper - The Trip

The Trip

Right, so they're Durban's answer to electro-jazzy house hipsters Goldfish? Not even close. The missing links between Weather Report's funky post-Bitches fusion brew, the ECM record label's austere ambience and let's see ... yeah sure, Medeski, Martin and Wood's hip-bop head spaces is Creeper's departure lounge.

With collaborators including Daniel Sheldon (trumpet), Captain Asthma (beats) and Margaret Gribble (vocals) onboard their groove-centric collection of improvised joints swings between cosmic broken beats ("Save Our Souls"), artfully Afrobeaten tribal trance ("Mirage"), trans-pacific acid trips ("Roti Roll"), cinematic funk ("Colesberg on My Mind"), ambient new age breaks ("Die Vlakte") and blunted Beat jazz sketches about the paranoia of encountering a police road block when you're stoned ("Straight Ahead").

SAMA-nominated bassist Dan Wilson and sax buddy Luke Townsend continue to shift their experiments in acid jazzy fusion onto the dancefloor on this collection of improvised electro-global grooves.
