Fila Brazillia

Luck be a Weirdo Tonight

Twentythree

Released: 21st April 2008 | 11 track album
Fila Brazillia epitomise all that is right in the giant melting pot that is called 'electronica'. Luck Be a Weirdo Tonight is Fila's fifth full-length, marking yet another shift in its alchemical approach to music. It's easy to keep up with the tongue-in cheek song titles (Do the Hale-Bopp, Pollo de Palo), but quite another thing to get a handle on what it is they do musically. You can't sum Fila Brazillia up with a short phrase or half-baked genre grouping, probably because the duo's grooves are so entirely immersive, you can't and don't want to deconstruct them. Fila Brazillia make what is technically called a glorious noise. Review by Dan Sicko - Wired (1997): Luck Be a Weirdo Tonight is Fila's fifth full-length, marking yet another shift in its alchemical approach to music. You can't sum Fila Brazillia up with a short phrase or half-baked genre grouping, probably because the duo's grooves are so entirely immersive, you can't and don't want to deconstruct them. Evident on this release is the pairing's experimentation with folk, added generously to songs like the soulful Rustic Bellyflop and Billygoat Groupies:' Requisite acoustic guitar loops, re-created woodwinds, and underplayed electronics are whirled together and accented by the snap of a hip hop snare. In general, the break beats found in Luck Be a Weirdo Tonight takes on the properties of the more organic elements, giving the album a unique cadence and flavor. Like few other neo-instrumentalists, Fila Brazillia's fusion feels natural and relaxed: loose, inflated grooves float along like dirigibles riding on warm wafts of sustained organ, low-frequency scrabbling, and reverb-drenched solos. By shifting subtly from jazz to funk to sylvan ballad, Fila Brazillia manages to sidestep the trappings and the criticisms of electronica - and kick out some amazing music in the process. This Luck ain't dumb.

"Blending every conceivable strain of modern electronic dance music into a funky health shake for those of us grown queasy with the usual fare."
