Ever wonder what would happen if you crossed genes from Stevie Wonder with those of Trent Reznor? No? Just me? Here’s the rub…You take (2) quintessential icons down into the basement of a secret government lab, extract DNA from them, mix it all up in a beaker and what would you get? Atlanta’s AnimalFilter. More specifically, you would get AF doing a phenomenal version of Lil Stevie’s “Superstition”. Simply one of the best covers ever. It’s funkified ferocity. In fact, that is how I would describe their debut album The Puppet. Now, to be honest I’ve only heard a couple of tracks (hint hint to AnimalFilter to send more music…stat!) but you would be hard pressed to find a band with more intensity. If we could just harness the heart pounding pulse and electric energy these cats put out you could power up their hometown of Hotlanta for decades. AF = AnimalFilter = Alternate form of Energy. Alert the media…wait…we are the media. Alert noted!
