Wagon Christ

Musipal

Ninja Tune

Wagon Christ (a.k.a. Luke Vibert), in his debut album for Ninja Tune, serves up 13 funky tracks that make for some damn fine electronic listening music. Almost goofy at times (though never cheesy), Musipal weaves in unusual melodic lines with tight downtempo beats without pretending to be hardcore hip-hop. A couple tracks hearken back somewhat to Vibert’s lovely jungle rhythms, but the overall tone of the album – one of smooth funk coupled with “pure electronic modern electronics” – is carried throughout. Recommended with parties, conversations, sex, and pet grooming.
