Up next we got an excellent rock/jazz treatment of the familiar Zelda anthem by none other than The OneUps. I was curious to see how they'd take such a thoroughly-arranged source and make it their own, and I have to say, the context they add is superb. A basic melodic progression/riff that intros the piece is used to frame the main melody, which is kept largely intact but augmented with soloing (on lead guitar all over & a funky EP groove @ 2'06") and part-writing that glues the whole thing together. Mustin writes/plugs:
"More Funk from The OneUps' fifth album, Intergalactic Continuum. Available in the brand new Fangamer.net store in partnership with the new Mustin Enterprises - http://store.mustinenterprises.com. Also available on iTunes and Bandcamp."
The lead guitar is crunchy & crisp, the EP is smooth like butter, bass is thick & has this subtle little synthish/FM attack to it that varies in intensity, drums keep it mostly straightforward but have just that right amount of humanization & groove that ensures things are tight but never feel too strict. As the piece progresses, the lead guitar gets more & more comfortable altering the main melodic riff, with some very cool results, and in just under four minutes, the way these gents turn musical cartwheels around Kondo's enduring theme speaks both to their individual craftsmanship & to their group synergy. Not much else to say - superlative stuff, check out the full album & the rest of their oeuvre for more!
