Review: Man Made Object by GoGo Penguin


Using a limited instrumental palette, GoGo Penguin achieves a both rich and relatable experience in their album Man Made Object. While it is clear that each musician in the group is a jazz virtuoso, they never engage in self-indulgence – a very fresh take on the genre. The music is largely manically energetic, but greatly and deftly varied using light polyrhythms and syncopation, as well as reversion to intentionally simplistic and other times intentionally simple segments. All of this is united by a constant anthemic attitude and live feel, which leads to a very enjoyable listener experience.
