Urban Turban by Cornershop
Released: May 2012
Label: Ample Play Recordings
Words that would be criticisms for another band are celebratory for Cornershop: Scattershot. Difficult to pin down. Fluffy. But a playful, crazily eclectic aesthetic that toys with pop structures has always been this British dance-rock group's ethos. Urban Turban just epitomizes it. Skipping from disco to Bollywood to alt-dance, it laces each style with idiosyncratic beats and disparate guest vocalists. Here and there -- like "Who's Gonna Light It Up?," a hodgepodge of throbbing guitars, distanced soul vocals and tabla -- all that lovely flightiness congeals into something beautifully solid.
