(Nectar) Seattle octet Polyrhythmics do this big-band Afrobeat/funk thing with proper zest and adventurousness. On their new album, Libra Stripes, the group's 32 limbs work in intricate harmony to generate a sophisticated slinkiness and expressive brassiness; theirs is a bold, complex chiaroscuro of wind, keyboard, guitar, bass, and percussion instruments. Polyrhythmics set out to move you, of course, but not without also ensuring that your mind expands out of its usual dimensions. Right about now, they sound like one of the most impressive sonic pleasures this city has to offer. Hit up polyrhythmics.bandcamp.com and go straight to "Bobo" for instant Fela Kuti–esque gratification and to "Skin the Fat" for sublimely greasy, Meters-like funk. With Funky 2 Death and Secret Sound Society. DAVE SEGAL
