JEB LOY NICHOLS with COLD DIAMOND & MINK: Can’t Cheat The Dance / We Gotta Work On It (Vinyl 7″)

JEB LOY NICHOLS with COLD DIAMOND & MINK: Can't Cheat The Dance / We Gotta Work On ItWe all know you can’t cheat death but Timmion Records’ newest signing, Wyoming-born, Wales-residing Jeb Loy, reckons you can’t cheat the dance either on new 45 Can’t Cheat The Dance. And he may have a point. Is it his effortless soul voice with just the slightest bit of rasp? Or the timeless lyrics? Or is it the solid bedrock of a funky drum break provided by Finnish funk mafia Cold Diamond & Mink? Or is it the combo of all three?  It’s the latter, of course! On the flip, things slow down somewhat for We Gotta Work On It‘s late night soul feel though Jeb and the band don’t need to make any extra effort since they’ve arguably nailed things exactly on both sides of the wax. Which means that news of a full Jeb Loy Nichols with Cold Diamond & Mink LP later in the year is good news indeed.
(Out 30 April on Timmion Records)
