THE KILLER METERS: Freak/ Stomp – 2009 – Single review

Rating: ★★★★★

The Killer Meters don’t do Meters’ covers anymore. Well, they probably do, but they’re more interested in stuff like this now. By ‘stuff like this’ read filthy and super-heavy Betty Davis’ style funk with a few later seventies frills’ like pitch bending synths on the aptly named Freak and super heavy northern soul in the form of Stomp with a few gritty edges like an almost garage-rock guitar. In fact whatever they’re doing, it’s probably super heavy. “I can’t take my eyes off the beat/ And he can’t take his eyes off of me,” sings Karime Kendra. I have no doubts about that whatsoever.
Out 1 June on Breakin Bread
