Off the amazing Dim Mak subsidiary label, Cold Crush, Mahjongg brings the party… well if by party you mean a group of white kids emulating their funk icons dressed in African tribal gowns making noise with every piece of musical junk they found at a flea market. Sounds fun, eh? Well it is, these quirky Midwesterners take art-punk and drop in heavy influences from funk, dub, disco, a number of different African genres and dancehall. This is their first full-length, and there already is a good amount of progression from their only EP released in early 2004. It is much tighter and song-based rather than just sprawling noise, though there is still plenty of that as well. The music is very good but the vocals need some work; they sometimes feel to mechanic and repetitive. This is definitely a win for art kids everywhere who sit around in their incense drenched apartments surrounded by homemade artwork, a wide collection of random records from the 70s and a heap of toys and rewired electronics they refer to as instruments; my kind of people.
