[PC FUNK] For all the lip service jam-band devotees pay to certain sorts of experimentalism, the H.O.R.D.E. hordes remain notoriously suspicious about pre-programmed sequencers augmenting their face acts' improvisatory shadings, and fans of instrumental wizardry typically turn tail at the slightest whiff of electronica. The Motet, though, has always done things a bit differently than its more predictable peers. While live performances are built around the ensemble's crack interplay, founding percussionist Dave Watts—the only constant in latest release Dig Deep's forays into Afrobeat, Stax-styled funk, free jazz and not especially successful vintage EDM—changes specialists along with the genre on album tracks, and the touring gigs now showcase synth lines for the surrounding frenzy to bleed through.
