IKEBE SHAKEDOWN: Unqualified

IKEBE SHAKEDOWN: UnqualifiedSo it seems that funky Afro-psych-soul outfit Ikebe Shakedown returns with a new full-length album, Kings Left Behind this August on Colemine Records. If that’s too long a wait though, you can preview the sort of delights on offer now with new track Unqualified – which, in spite of the title, displays a veritable surfeit of skill at playing uptempo cinematic soul. Expect a driving beat from the off and smouldering organ courtesy of album guest musician Eric Finland swiftly joined by lashings of horns. Then it’s a breathless race for the dropout of a guitar-laced bridge before the track kicks back in again and sprints hell-for-leather to the end.
