[RATING:5] Time to commend the Happy People record label for services to reggae once again as they commit the debut EP of Washington DC’s The Loving Paupers to 12″ vinyl. Side A features three vocal tracks very much in the style of the likes of Hollie Cook and Shniece McMenamin as the band deliver an increasingly smouldering experience. Things begin with the reflective Back There, moving to the minor key heartbreak glory of Myself Alone and culminating in the absolutely beautiful Next Broken Heart. This being reggae of course, you can find (mainly) instrumental dub versions of all three on the flipside. What you waiting for?
(Pre-order now/ Ships 10 December on Happy People Records)
