Daft Punk made a big hoo-ha about how their latest record was a return to the '70s. Although, yes it was retro, one listen to The Getup's take on "Get Lucky" and you get an idea of what it really would have sounded like back then: block rockin breaks, meandering warm bass, jagged funk guitar licks, bonkers organ freakouts and soul diva vocals. If that's not enough we get a semi instrumental B Boy edit too!
It's been a good few months since we've heard from authentic retro funk peddlers The Getup, and they've been missed. Well, they're missed no longer as here they've served up two more slice of piping hot funk pie. "What If" is all tight '70s funk, urgent drums and leather lunged female vocals - in other words classic house party fodder. "Ooh Ooh" on the other hand, is a total '60s style freakout jam apparently with Sesame Street's Animal on drums, Jon Lord on organ and Jimmy Page on guitar. Yep, it's that good!
