Sofa Surfer Wolfgang Schl?gl has been gettin’ up off the couch to make Stateside trips in pursuit of his LA girlfriend. His resultant solo album has an American rocksoulfunk layer that departs from the Surfers’ Viennese dub stylee. As I-Wolf, Schl?gl wallows in the misgivings of a lovestruck soul. Guitar, bass, drum breaks, and slippery horns churn drunkenly behind rock and r&b vocals by the likes of Ken Cesar and Damon Aaron, plus a ragga chant by DJ Collage. See Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s 1971 Natural Black Inventions: Root Strata for more on the context of I-Wolf’s passionate, successful debut.
