Made For Pleasure
Out of stock
Premier UK funk band The New Mastersounds have been laying down tough grooves and jazz inflected vibes for over 15 years and on ‘Made For Pleasure’ they show why their fanbase continues to grow. Recorded in New Orleans this new 11 track set shows the Meters influence from the off with the lazy, laid back swampy funk of the title track, ‘High Wilde’ sounds like one of their early efforts – bubbling bass, zippy horns and that Hammond swirling in the back ground – while the sultry voiced Charly Lowry guests on the street grooves of ‘Enough Is Enough’. The garage-soul of ‘Sitting On My Knees’, the reggae of ‘Fancy’ and the mellow Departure Lounge Jazz of ‘Tranquilo’ show the band’s abilities to bridge disparate styles so well. ‘Let’s Do Another’ is another standout on a strong album while ‘Just Gotta Run’ HAS to be the track of the album: vintage sounding dancefloor soul that could be a massive crossover sound.
