Parts of the Process

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Following Portishead's trip-hop breakthrough in '94, a rash of like-minded British bands followed in their stylistic wake, joining burbling beats and smoky grooves with female vocals, to varying degrees of success. One of the best of the crop was Morcheeba, who trumped the competition with the elastic rhythm beds and live instrumentation provided by brothers Paul and Ross Godfrey and the honeyed vocals of Skye Edwards. After releasing four studio albums, Morcheeba take a gander back on the career-spanning Parts of the Process and cast an eye toward the future with two new tracks.

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Following Portishead's trip-hop breakthrough in '94, a rash of like-minded British bands followed in their stylistic wake, joining burbling beats and smoky grooves with female vocals, to varying degrees of success. One of the best of the crop was Morcheeba, who trumped the competition with the elastic rhythm beds and live instrumentation provided by brothers Paul and Ross Godfrey and the honeyed vocals of Skye Edwards. After releasing four studio albums, Morcheeba take a gander back on the career-spanning Parts of the Process and cast an eye toward the future with two new tracks. The disc isn't sequenced chronologically, placing the trio's ensnaring debut single "Trigger Hippy" -- on which Edwards, in a sultry coo, invites you to "Tune in / Drop out / And love / Pull the trigger" -- not at the beginning but smack in the middle, where its slithery beats and psychedelic touches cast a glow all around. Elsewhere, Edwards's measured soul and the Godfreys' use of live instruments heat up the already heady grooves, spiking "The Sea" with psychedelic guitar touches, lending "Parts of the Process" a country twang via pedal steel and fiddles, and intertwining guitars, harpsichord, and pedal steel on the melancholy "What Do New York Couples Fight About," a duet with Lambchop's Kurt Wagner. In place of Morcheeba's oft-misinterpreted single "Women Lose Weight," a funky collaboration with Slick Rick, is the new, disco-fied "What's Your Name," featuring a cameo from another old-school rapper, Big Daddy Kane. The disc concludes with the other new offering, "Can't Stand It," an acoustic-based ballad with empathetic strings -- its meditative mood fits the disc's retrospective nature and bodes well for Morcheeba's future explorations.

    an awesome band

    i adore morcheeba...they're so inventive, even if it's on the verge of being weird. sometimes you just get tired of that ubiquitous alternative sound, and morcheeba is perfect!! this is a great cd, with all the awesome songs of their previous albums, like a sampler/anthology. great for hard-core morcheeba fans and new people as well!! "can't stand it", "the sea", "way beyond"...they're great!!
