Farout - Further Out [1979], album review

Not Quite

I had hoped the band's name would speak for itself....

Alas, album title is more apt: not drowning, but waving, a jazz mix - funk at one end [Muppet Dance, strangely]; twee prettiness at the other [Daybreak] - and the title track is heavy on the synths but with some nice enough sax. Walrus Jump is neatly percussive, if a little silly. Brainwash is bass-funky.

Could be had under the Trades Description Act, but I set a high bar on the accolade, and this isn't awful by any means. Just dated.
