Whiskey Business returns to Red Space on Friday, November 9 - Limited Tickets Available Here!

Mifuné blends disparate elements into an eclectic mélange of world music. Its debut bubbles with electronic textures reminiscent of Stereolab. The Cleveland eight-piece experiments with jazzy funk ("Don't Do All Your Talkin' to Me"), politically tinged Afrobeat ("Storm Troopers"), and soul-pop ("I Don't Know What Love Is"). Mifuné handles each well, but the album's best moments are when the sounds reach a balance, as on "Patsy Cline," whose infectious bounce, Brazilian rhythms, and spacey lounge vibe create a blissful pop confection. Frequent shifts in tempo and emphasis -- from bustling beats to hook-fueled melodies to jazzy excursions -- ensure a lot of inventive sound. Singer-keyboardist Christine Fader's soulful vocals are the icing on the cake.
