"Hi-Fi Superfly" may be the funkiest album you buy this year!!

------------------------------------------------------

Sticky Pistil's debut CD "hi-fi superfly" has recently been released and it looks like the band might have a hit record on their hands. The bands ability to integrate a kind of nostalgic "get down funky" psychedelic sound with cutting edge hip hop lyrics and beats and end up with a great rock and roll record will definately get "hi-fi superfly" a place on the charts. Critics and fans alike have expressed their opinions of the bands music with FANatic enthusiasm and comparisons to Beck, the Chili Peppers and P-Funk should be enough to make you want to dance down to your local CD store and check em out. But save the gas and visit their website instead. This band definately has internet savvy.........Off The Ground

AMP3 News "Indie CD of the week" Sticky Pistil's Hi-Fi Superfly
Twenty years ago, Sticky Pistil would have been Yes. Ten years ago, the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Today, Sticky Pistil stands alone. Relying on a funky bass groove oriented sound, Sticky Pistil inject samples, clever guitar hooks, and vocals that utilize influences from just about any funk band you've ever heard, from Prince to P-Funk. These guys "Funk with your body, funk with your mind", and have both the chops and studio savvy to pull it off....

Sticky Pistil.
What a great name for a funk band. It sounds erotic and obscene; it's actually a flower part. Maybe you can get a birds and bees thing going, it could be sex, in a funk sort of way. No mistake, Sticky Pistil is a funk band , complete with big pants, danceable beats, rhythms that make you move. Got to admit, the album cover for their debut record, "Hi Fi Superfly," was so over the top that at first you wonder if this is a joke. It isn't. The first time I listened to this, I wasn't sure I was ready to believe it.

Well, I'm still not sure I'm a believer, but "Hi Fi Superfly" is certainly one of the most ambitious records I've heard in a long time. Its funk mixed with a hefty dose of sampling and DJ work, a little rock guitar, and, most importantly, a set of messages to get behind. They call it funkinmental, and that's as good a word for it as any I could make up. It's funk you can think along to.

It's still funk. The first two numbers, the short "Everything is Possible" and the full length "Whatcha Waitin' For?" are self- explanatory calls to action. True to the funk, Sticky Pistil doesn't push an exclusive ideology, they just ask you to stop the dancing a moment and wonder what you're going to do when you're done dancing.

Then you move ahead to track three, "Fundamental Thang." Take note, kids, in the world of funk thing is spelled with an "a." That's right. This piece is good funk, clipping great lines like "get up off that thing" and "when you're hot you're hot" into a seamless mix that keeps it going for better than six minutes. This one will funk with your body and funk with your mind. It's designed to.

The politics are not always new. "Contact," for instance, is the often-heard plea for humans to recognize their common humanity and come together. The DJ mix called "The Western World" is a bit more effective, mixing Richard Nixon with a soundscape and the repeated "the western world; somebody stole it." They leave you to decide who stole it, besides just Tricky Dick. In fact, the short interlude pieces, from the spacey "Alienated" to the sound effect poem "History," give the album a dimension rarely heard in the world of funk. Sticky Pistil set out to make a funkinmental record, one you can dance to and think about at the same time. "Hi Fi Superfly" is to the Funkateers what the Marseilles was to the French Revolution, or at least it could be. And that's something to think about.

Fertile Imaginations.............................

[Sticky Pistil] delivers a crop of tunes that has music classifiers and catagorizers scratching their heads. The music has alot in common with the new layered funk and trip hop. Sticky Pistil's sound is like The Lo-Fidelity Allstars with Pigeonhead on a cyber date with Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart. Their new release, "Hi-Fi superfly", has as much in common with urban R&B and rap as it does with the psychedelic funk of the early 70's.....The Taos News

Contact - Rolling bass riffs and a chunky wah guitar topped off with some slinky horn backups rock this song. Hip-hop vocal verses and hot solos from the sax and guitar add to the mix. Put on your dark shades, pop it into the player and groove down the highway with Contact playing full blast! --by Jack "DMZ" Orman (RAMBO REPORT)
