More Than Lights' debut prescribes dose for those funky illz
Toddlers aside, promo photos feature band members in various colored winter hats, which isn't a bad testament to their multi-flavored family vibe. Some of the tunes from their November 21 debut album, The Electric Prescription For All Your Funky Illz, are straight-up bursts of jubilation (sometimes simply thankful for the air in our lungs); others deal in the compassionate heat of some of life's chance moments. Either way, you'll want to warn the youth inside you: these pleasantries might induce lots of hand-holding, spontaneous ecstasy, and maybe a little jazz in those hips.
Their efforts spawned a seminal blend of blues and jazz, latin beats and big band, hip-hop and new-school hotness. It's a constantly shifting spotlight. It might be Fine's vocal graces ("I take inspiration like it's medicine/Swallowing it down, so I can pass it out again") or Unga's wily solos (the delicious "Eyes of a Lady"), guest lyricists or the lighthearted whimsy of Kanser's big men on campus.
