Nomo brings the funky stuff -- with a side of electronica -- to town.

1390736.t.jpg
Detroit’s Nomo isn’t an easy group to pin down. For starters, its globe-trotting, polyrhythmic take on free jazz uncovers a fondness for shunning music’s conventions. And the electronic blips and bleeps that drift through its latest CD, New Tones, collide with big, brassy horn blasts that punctuate nearly every song. Like Afro-funk collective Antibalas, Nomo takes its good ol’ time before locking into a groove. But once one is found, the eight-member band eases into slippery and occasionally lengthy pieces that feed your brain as well as your ass.
