The collective Homelife may have broken up mostly into component parts, but their vision as a group on GURU MAN HUBCAP LADY still stands as testament. Equal parts live funk and twisted jazz, the album embraces an 'anything goes' spirit and lives up to it quite ably. The title track features vocals appearing all over the place, barely held in check by the drums, but the guitars and squatting horns and eventually banjo on "A Casa (The House)" seem perfectly controlled, if swinging. The varied instrumentation keeps things moving along at a brisk clip, from the thick bass, organ and congas on "Harder" to the mouth pops and tooting of "Windytreehouserollerdisco." But Homelife also varies its moods: the exotica of "The Lantern" interlude abuts the fat electronic bass of "Heaven Knows" and Seaming To's soprano-pitch vocals, whereas "Banjo" has hints of Latin percussion, and "April Sunshine" suggests a showdown at the OK Corral. "Big Tree" slows things down to a gentle shake and some humming before Seeming comes in to caress the track in a lullaby, and, to cap it off, "Strangers" drifts into some steel guitar and strings to emphasize the dreaminess. Weird, but definitely worth it.
