Considering the shelf life of most indie bands, the fact that Guelph kingpins King Cobb Steelie are still together and making good music after 15 years is impressive. That they're working within the confines of trippy, ambient jazz-funk and their tunes still sound fresh, edgy and relevant is pretty amazing, since the acid jazz genre as a rule can trigger flashbacks to mid-90s hipster cafés. Destroy All Codes combats that by leaning heavily on the Meters-style funk side of the equation, with bubbling bass lines that hit below the belt and some sweet hi-hat action. Rebecca Campbell's vocals are dreamy, and there's a nice frenetic energy that keeps your attention. King Cobb Steelie launch Destroy All Codes at Lee's Palace August 6.
