A thunderous dance party that fuses Afrobeat, Funk, Latin and Psychedelia, BMSM is constantly charting new territory. With their latest, independently-produced album "Runnin' for the Ghost," the band is poised to continue its exponential growth, uniting people and genres along the way.
This whole album is filled with a wonderful energetic quality while also being unobtrusive in a way that makes it easy to focus on work or reading.
The standout track for me is March of the Idiots. Future Ancestors is excellent as well.
The whole thing inspires me to think of it as the soundtrack to some movie from the 1970s. A Becker
