Album Review

Matthew Chicoine's third album under the name Recloose is like a fond look back at the more adventurous side of 1970s funk and soul, as seen through the lens of 1990s Detroit. He still has his sense of humor (each track on this album is exactly three minutes and 45 seconds long), and he still has connections with some very fine singers.

Other highlights include the cool and complex funk of "Catch a Leaf" (featuring the very fine singer Rachel Frasier), the Latin-tinged "Robop," and the slow, shuffling funk groove that supports a quiet storm vocal reprise from Frasier on "Daydream," the final track.
