Manimalhouse / Press

“There's a quiet sea change happening behind the scenes in Portland music. Horn-fueled funk, soul and even disco outfits are emerging from the shady fringes and finding themselves drenched in the stage lights of some of the city's best clubs. A lot of these bands are in cahoots with the local hip-hop scene (Manimalhouse doubles as local MC Serge Severe's backing band), and many of them are startlingly legit. Manimalhouse is in that category, and while most of its new album Move Your Soul places the band firmly in the "funky party band" genre (sample lyric: "Get your ass over here and mow my lawn / Do you know what it means to really get it on?"), the disc has its tangents of deep, indulgent, jazzy groove as well. The KC and the Sunshine Band vibes aren't for everybody, but the talent level here is pretty undeniable—as is the mounting evidence that Portland's future is measurably funkier than its present. ”
