Looking for emceeing over fat stanky funk? Look no further than the latest Cookin’ On 3 Burners single, The World Is Cold, which finds the veteran Melbourne outfit return with their first studio recording after what has turned out to be (due to Covid regs.) their longest ever break from touring and recording. The A-side generates plenty of musical fire to which Mantra and Jane Tyrell add inflammable bars and a sung hook respectively. You’ll want something soothing to follow that so it’s only fair that the band deliver an instro cover of Mos Def’s Ms Fat Booty on the flip which they take in a cinematic soul direction with impressive results.
