Album Shuffle 007: The Meters, THE METERS

Josie · 1969

Once upon a time there was a band called Booker T. & The MG's. Then the Meters happened, and Donald Duck Dunn is left swallowing dust. Zigaboo!

Funk before funk, crisp soul exponential. New Orleans was always the mother home to everything good and beautiful and sizzling in American music. Every song sounds the same*. That's the point. Only problem with the record is the spaces in between the songs.

There's really nothing to say about this record, not with words. Hips, feet, shoulders, and every muscle in the body might have a shot, though.

*Not in the back half. "Ann" is going on a mixtape dedicated to the next person I fall in love with.
