[POLYRHYTHMS BABY] Nothing quite says “America” like stuttering African guitar, blurting tuba, math-rock-y percussion and vocal chant-alongs that fall somewhere between Devo and art-rock contemporaries like Django Django. The trio’s sophomore effort, Heat Waves, rummages deeper in the experimental rift than its 2009 debut, yet it’s just groove-heavy and clap-tastic. Drummer Adam Baz, guitarist Patrick Phillips and bassist Dasha Shleyeva have recently begun to slough off the pop sensibilities, keying in on the shimmery nuances and hazy undertones that are paving the way for a new kind of Afro-pop in Portland—and not the “Oxford Comma” kind.
