On previous Baby Mammoth albums, you could expect to listen to a whole album and perhaps doze off in a chilled-out stupor. Not so with Octo Muck-the duo of Mark Blissenden and Steve Coby are taking their sound in new directions. Here you find eight-minute house tracks interspersed between the dubby downtempo of their previous work. In general, there’s a much faster, dance-oriented feel to the album, though the duo haven’t lost their trademark acid jazz feel. Like former labelmates Fila Brazillia, the results vary-when it’s not filler, it’s very good.
