Call NOMO a party band if you want, but the nine-man “post-afrobeat” gang proves it can do more than jam on its latest studio effort. Tunes—from the airy, flute-topped “Crescent” to the dense, organ-laden “Banners on High”—actually go somewhere, even as they compel the listener to get up and boogie. And if it feels this fun on disc, imagine what it could do in person.
