[RATING:5] I’ve just heard Boca 45‘s new LP and it goes large. This is the lead single and it goes large too. It’s right there in the name: Mr Big Sun. Big. Like the sun. A great big psychedelic funk-rock sun that finds Stephanie McKay‘s whispery but urgent vocal barely restrained over voodoo percussion that builds and builds until she lets rip over a Zep/ Purple type riff. And then it does all over again a couple of times. Reminds me of when music was great. Hell, given what’s come out since Christmas and what I’ve seen that’s due to come out shortly, maybe music is great again! Happy days.
(Out soon on Digga Please)
