Up, Bustle and Out: One Colour Just Reflects Another

One Colour Just Reflects Another (Ninja Tune USA SDW011-2) marks the US debut of Up Bustle and Out. Hailing from (you guessed it) Bristol, this outfit isn’t as far out in space as some of it’s homies, more into neck-bobbing than mind-expanding. That’s okay, considering how well they, with healthy doses of old style instrumentation (electric piano, flute, and thick-as-cream-pie basslines) attack the vertebrae. Up Bustle’s love for percussion and rhythm bubbles below the surface of tunes like “The Revolutionary Woman of the Windmill” and comes to full fruition on “1,2,3, Alto Y Fuera,” and “An African Friendship.”
