Da Backwudz

"I Don't Like the Look of It" (Rowdy Records)

On this single, the cousins from Decatur show as much love for Gene Wilder's portrayal of Willie Wonka as they did for Jennifer Holliday's Dreamgirls hook earlier this year. Sho Nuff cites e.e. cummings as an influence in his rhyming, while Big Marc attends to a stripped-down rhythm track. The duo's true amazingness, though, is an effervescent, childlike goofiness that neatly complements a Dadaist, non-sequitur-laden sense of humor. Producer Dallas Austin wasn't being hyperbolic when he called these guys geniuses.
