Sofa Surfers - Cargo (2000) Retail CD
The name might suggest American frat-boy japery, but the Sofa Surfers offer nothing of the sort. Shut away in a converted factory deep in the industrialised heartland of Vienna, the Sofa Surfers make music that owes nothing to music's ugly present, and everything to the purity of experimental music past: dub reggae, improvised jazz and Krautrock. All this makes "Cargo" sounds terribly cerebral, but fear not--in the fine tradition of Billy Mahonie, Mogwai and the more muscular end of post-rock, the Sofa Surfers know to navigate tracks like the hypnotic "Latal In Tampere" along decidedly rock linesmore…. Elsewhere, instrumentation is stripped down to emulate the working conditions of a primitive dub studio--so it hardly seems incongruous when the Surfers draft in a Jamaican deejay to rap on "Beans And Rice", or beatnik poet Victor Oshioke to freeform on the mighty low-bass avant-jazz workout "If It Were Not For You". Retro, then? Well, yeah. But from these deep-buried musical roots, the Sofa Surfers are weaving new forms --Louis Pattison
