[GARAGE FUNK] Portland’s Otis Heat flies in the face of the common funk ideal. This isn’t an army of musicians producing throbbing, booty-dropping anthems to the Mothership. It’s a stripped-down trio that specializes in mellow grooves. With its second record, Yoon, the band shows a surprisingly versatile and unconventional side, with Sean O’Neill yowling like Shannon Hoon in heat over a trippy sonic backdrop. But what makes Otis so invigorating is the band’s ability to draw the listener into a trance using such minimal means, with the light and psychedelic funk sounds toned down to a chilled-out throb. It’s simply mesmerizing and utterly original.
