Album review: Displace, Eureka!

The jam rock quartet presents their debut full-length


Amid the scores of acts that have frothed up from the local jam scene in the past few years, Displace is among the finest with a dynamic sax-stroked fusion of progressive rock, funk, jazz and electro. This Friday, the quartet presents the self-produced and recorded fruits of their labor: first-ever full-length Eureka!. The 11 tracks offer a rather impressive translation of what these guys can do in a live setting, a combination of fine musical chops and well-wrought compositions primed for plenty of stretching out and improvising ala disco-hued nine-plus-minute instrumental epic, “Genosis Shuffle.” Songs like “Old Bread” introduce more tripped-out meanderings as well as polyrhythmic tempos while “Fog” turns up the greasy wah wah funkadelia, making for an overall strong debut. Critics’ Rating: 3 and 1/2 out of 5 Stars
