This US edition of GETTIN WISE contains a bonus disc with unreleased tracks.
Brassy: Muffin Spencer (vocals, guitar); Karen Frost (vocals, bass); Stefan Gordon (guitar); Jonny Barrington (drums, scratches).
Brassy's follow-up to 2000's Got It Made returns to that album's musical recycling effort, with the only noticeable variation being an emphasis on hip-hop over punk revivalist posing. Standouts include "Hit 'Em Hard" and "1-0-0," which work their one- and two-note electro-funk reconstructions to somewhat memorable effect. [Gettin Wise was also issued with a bonus CD featuring additional remixes of "Play Some D," Brassy's hit from their first album.] ~ Johnny Loftus
