DEROBERT & THE HALF TRUTHS: I Got Burned (2012)

Another cut on G.E.D. Soul Records demonstrating that the Daptone lot need to watch their backs in terms of who’s got the most authentic funk-soul sound. This time around it’s Derobert & The Half Truths with vocal A side I Got Burned and instro B side Nashville Country Bump. It’s no lie to say that both sides ‘do the damn thing’ admirably and a measure of how convincingly ‘back-in-the-day’ this sounds can be found in the culture-shock the listener experiences upon suddenly hearing Derobert reference the way his (ex) missus ‘burned’ him by (among other things) manipulating his picture in Photoshop. Something which no doubt his Facebook feed alerted him to. Along with the rest of the planet. Suddenly, hearing about it ‘on the grapevine’ doesn’t seem so bad.
