CRUSHED VELVET & THE VELVETEERS: Shake / Really Can’t Get Over You (Vinyl 7″)

Just out from the Crushed Velvet & The Velveteers project of Soulive’s Alan Evans comes this upbeat 45 featuring new track Shake and Love & Truth LP cut Really Can’t Get Over You. The former is the brisker of the two opening with a big horns vamp and proceeding no doubt to lay waste to contemporary soul and funk dancefloors as Melanie Masson belts out the lyrics over a driving funky drums n horns-powered soul. On the very slightly mellower flip, Canadian vocalist Yannick holds forth on another ear-friendly dancefloor soul burner which, like the other side, also features a rather tasty drum break. And I can’t imagine anyone grumbling about that.
