SOUL SUGAR feat. LEONARDO CARMICHAEL: Why Can’t We Live Together (2016)

why-cant-we-live-together-soul-sugarSoul Sugar take Timmy Thomas’s minimal seventies soul groove Why Can’t We Live Together and transform it into a slo-mo disco-inflected reggae groove with a super smooth falsetto soul vocal from Leonardo Carmichael. The gently throbbing bass and the song’s message are the very tonic for a world which seems bent on dealing with political and corporate excess by handing the keys over to an even more mendacious and venal set of arseholes. In such a world where almost nothing makes sense any more, it comes as something of a relief to find out that not only is this out on vinyl but on a trend-bucking and eminently sensible (given its epic nine-minute length) twelve inches with a Dennis Bovell dub version on the flip.
