Album: Transglobal Underground, The Stone Turntable (Mule Satellite)

Once again London's original global fusionists have come up with a dizzyingly diverse bunch of tunes.

There's much more of a hip-hop influence this time, giving them licence to genre-hop with even more abandon than before. I could hear everything from M.I.A. to the Stones classic "Sympathy for the Devil" in there; you'll hear other stuff. But it's all swaggeringly confident and, against-the-odds, cohesive. Perhaps their most in-tune with the zeitgeist effort yet.
