The Mutants- “Voodoo Blues” (Spinefarm Records)

A few months ago I reviewed the release “Deathrace 3000” by The Mutants which was essentialy a compilation of some of their past work but luckily I have been rocking out to the “afro-garage-mambo styled music” on their latest release “Voodoo Blues” and they haven’t lost their chops. What started out as a Finnish garage-rock band has progressed to a very cool almost un-classifiable instrumental rock and roll collective that morphs from hot Afro-Cuban vibes to fuzzed out guitar based garage rock with stabs of voodoo rythym percolating throughout. Very cool stuff. Slap this on the CD, grab a Mai Tai and enjoy.
