Bring the Funk Music Review: OTEP

OTEP has been known to bring in the noise and the funk. I can’t tell if there’s more noise or funk. Anyway, they have a newish album out called Kult 45. It has controversy all over it – from the cover to the last lyric.

Music isn’t always shiny happy funk. Sometimes music can get down & dirty and totally in your face.

If you’ve heard OTEP before you know that they don’t hold back with their lyrics. On this album, they express their opinions about the current political situation. This album is not cute and cuddly. OTEP came to send a message and don’t have time to waste on pleasantries.

If you’re looking for a nice, quiet middle of the road album, this is not the album for you. OTEP might not be your cup of tea. However, if you’re into loud, bands like Rage Against the Machine that stir the political pot, then OTEP might be your new favorite band.

The track that I like the best is “Boss.” “To The Gallows” is a close second. The link to the video is below.
