FOLD feat. POTENT WHISPER: We’re The Ones (single)

FOLD feat. POTENT WHISPER:  We're The Ones (single)Title track of the forthcoming Fold LP, single We’re The Ones features emcee and spoken word commando Potent Whisper on the mic and the band reckon it’s got the broadest appeal of anything they’ve done so far.

IZO FITZROY: Skyline (2017)

IZO FITZROY:  SkylineThe new single from Izo FitzRoy is the title track of her debut LP Skyline and finds her busy doing a bit of soul-searching. In her own words she’s “Moving through the badlands, moving through the dark times, searching for the answer.” Is it under the laid-back piano at the start? Maybe the bluesy guitar has seen it? No?

As a slave to funk it wasn’t so much a duty as a compulsion to follow the trail of confusion through a succession of blogs (including one called monkeyboxing.com) where I discovered claims for a release date of 5 April, 4 May, 5 May, and 6 June, among others. Eventually, heading straight for the Daptone website itself, I discover a post that states, “Get a sneak peak of the album and download the title track “I Learned the Hard Way” – immediately followed by the words “Coming April 6th 2010.” ….Er…right…so is that the LP or the single then? Daptone Records – hot on authentic golden funky soul, not so good with plain English. Still, while you wait for the single (and the LP) on vinyl you can always download (the single) below from Daptone Records. They only want your email off you and where’s the harm in that…?
