Dark Side of Hall & Oates-A Tribute
The Dark Side of Hall & Oates is a tribute album like no other. Rather than simply 'covering' the songs of the storied duo (after all, how does one improve upon perfection?), the members of Koot Hoomi have chosen to re-imagine the music as it might exist in an alternate universe--replete with off-kilter harmonies, psychedelic swirl, minor-key digressions, and the occasional spot of Tuvan throat-singing; all recorded with cheap instruments on an old-school Tascam 488 analog tape recorder. In addition to tackling the songs you know and love ('Maneater,' 'Kiss on My List,' 'Out of Touch,' etc.) the Hoomi have also reinterpreted a number of deep cuts going all the way back to Daryl and John's earliest Philly demos. The end result is an album infused with the same bracing, adventurous spirit that has informed so much of Hall & Oates' own greatest work.
