[WEST COAST AFROBEAT] The I-5 corridor between Frisco and Seattle is littered with decidedly non-African musicians creating decidedly amazing Afrobeat-inspired music, and Seattle's Polyrhythmics have figured out a way to ground it in the Pacific Northwest: Add some fuckin' intergalactic groove. With a new 7-inch dropping for this weekend's Record Store Day celebrations, the octet has realized a wonderful balance between the traditionalist school and psychedelia. As a result, the music is loyal to its highly danceable roots but, unlike many others, the group uses the past as a springboard into weird and wonderful funk grooves that give a glimpse into what would have happened if the mothership had crash-landed in Nigeria in 1977.
