Humanzee: After the Aftermath

Duran Duran meets Rush? Well, that's certainly what California's Humanzee sometimes sounds like. The self-proclaimed "alt/prog/pop/rock band" opens its second album, After the Aftermath, with "Don't Close Your Eyes," which highlights vocalist Tim Agee's Simon LeBon tendencies and the slow-burn groove of "Charades" further accentuates them. On other songs, such as "The Closing Curtain" and "Time Rules Over Us," the rhythm section of Eli Colvin and Roger Reese takes on the distinct polyrhythmic characteristics of Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland. "Another Moment" percolates like Rush, and the sonic backdrop for "Strange Light" could be lifted from an old U2 record.

That's not to say that Humanzee is a knock-off of any band. In fact, the trio takes a creative approach to channeling its influences so much so that it's difficult to slot Humanzee into any specific genre. And that should be enough for After the Aftermath to keep open-minded listeners both captive and satisfied.
