The Numbs, “Freaks Easy”

The man behind the Numbs is named Jeff Johnson, and he lives in Seattle, the home city of Bill Nye the Science Guy. It's easy to think of this ragga-inflected squelcher being utilized during a montage on an episode of Nye's classic PBS show, possibly when he's adding various household substances to a beaker. Midway through the song, an alarm goes off: the beaker is overflowing! Nye grins at the camera and continues, with the bubbling overflow being collected into a pre-prepared pan. A soothing horn melody returns to the music as Nye maneuvers the pan into the fridge. The clock speeds up even more, and at the end of the song, out comes the pan, and it's piña colada-flavored jello! The Magic of Science!

They're calling this kind of music “junk funk” but I think “Caribbean-inflected science Television theme song” is a better genre. You can grab The Numbs off of the adorable micro-label Couple Skate starting July 15.
