Irresistible stuff from Melbourne-based Surprise Chef, which steps confidently forward from last year’s acclaimed debut ‘All News Is Good News’. It brims over with expansive, happy-go-lucky laidback grooves that nod to pioneering late-60s analogue synth-led psych funk (Sly & The Family Stone or Grand Funk Railroad perhaps), but then there’s an off-kilter, lo-fi charm about killer tracks like ‘Leave It, Don’t Take It’ (reminiscent of Money Mark) that will leave you smiling for days.
