Ozomatli - Fire Away

L.A. collective return
Ozomatli - Fire Away
Sprawling LA collective Ozomatli return with ‘Fire Away’, their fifth full-length to date, and offer another rich dose of positive energy and musical diversity. The album provides some fairly easy - but not necessarily simple - listening throughout, infusing Ozo’s funk, hip-hop, Latin American and other global musical influences with plenty of slick, skin-tight grooves. The all-out party vibe of opener ‘Are You Ready?’ sets the tone for tracks like ‘Yeah Yeah Yeah’, ‘Nadas Por Free’ and the one-fingered salute of ‘Malagasy Shock’, whilst ‘Love Comes Down’ and ‘Caballito’ help us go out the way we came in.
