Icy Demons, ‘Miami Ice’

By • Jun 3rd, 2008 • Category: Album Reviews

Man Man’s Chris “Pow Pow” Powell and Bablicon’s Griffin “Blue Hawaii” Rodriguez recruited an often-changing cast of characters to piece together this boundless mostly-electronic LP. Miami Ice incorporates all the spastic melodies and hyper-elusive structures from the two songwriters’ primary acts, as this strange side project treks through nine songs with the same free-flowing demeanor of acid jazz. Cello, horns and bells underscore Powell’s drums and Rodriguez’s fluctuating vocal delivery. With each song feeling different from the last, the manic release is as uncomfortable as it is intriguing.
