Prog-rock six-piece the Mother Earth Experiment are Zappa to the core, from their geeky funk-rock grooves, to their dense psychedelic atmospheres and their unabashed ecological proselytising. ‘Cool Down Mama’ is a case in point, clean licks, bellbottom-tight grooves, bongo jams and straight-up freaky breakdowns. Nothing’s off-limits in the Mother Earth Experiment’s handbook, and the band’s pure earnestness is what carries the whole thing off. (CD)
