[RATING: 5] Keep your hats on, the releases are coming in thick and fast this week, like this new one from Angels of Libra who’ve swapped singer Nathan Johnston and the moody soul vibes for singer Maiiah and a rip-roaring mid-sixties style soul stomper – No No No (I’m So Broke). Broke? Well – aren’t we all with Mad Liz and Kami-Kwasi at the helm of an already foundering ship? Cue a mainly split-screen video that features our Maiiah wandering the streets on the left and poor old Betty Boop working like a slave on the right. Could that door provide some relief from the black and white misery of poverty? Of course it could! Cue Maiiah and the band partying in glorious technicolour while the economic Titanic sinks. What’s that Maiiah – ‘Whatever I try, I stay broke’? – that’s because you’re not in the middle of a recession; you’re in the middle of a robbery!
