BACKBEAT UNDERGROUND feat. PAMELA LAWRENCE: The Labor Day Sessions (2016)

the-labor-day-sessions-backbeat-undergroundRating: ★★★★★ Lurking on the virtual doormat today was this three-tracker from Washington outfit Backbeat UndergroundThe Labor Day Sessions. The Less I Know The Better is an energetic funk instro that joins the dots between the sort of organ funk that used to be the stock-in-trade of Stoned Soul Picnic and Cookin On 3 Burners with touches of afro-percussion while 4645 is a Rhodes n guitars affair that positively exudes jazz club vibes. What you want this for however is the gorgeous Pamela Lawrence-featuring Mine, Mine, Mine a soaring seventies-style slice of organ-led soul with groovy bass sax among the horns. Enlist that lady as permanent member at once and do more shit like this! Big-ups to Fort Knox 5’s Andy Cerutti for the heads-up!
