The Hackney Colliery Band drops their AMAZING debut album!

Hands down, this is what i have been waiting for! For all you horn addicts, these guys really make me enjoy the whole lot of their tunes! Finally they drop their debut album on the überawesome WahWah 45s Label – and EVERY song is great!

Pls suport these guys and their great debut record by buying their album right here . I got mine right away, really a fanboy over here. Might even do a second remix to one of their tunes, but w/o a free download. Even though i think our Africa (YUM YUM remix) elevated them to at least becoming known within the german scene. Support these guys, their genuine great compositions and a few greatly reinterpreted cover versions.

Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside finally release their debut Album “Dirty Radio”

Finally the album is here… we wrote about Sallie Ford over a year ago, even had one of her songs (Danger) in our annual top tunes and the way i described their sound was “…I feel the sun shining through in their music, i feel like sippin a cold lemonade under a summer tree near the lake… and seriously it has such an open and positive vibe (aargh words again) – Simply love this band.”

And thank god, their debut album is no different!!! Check it out and please make sure to get it. Here s a link to their new Album “Dirty Radio” via itunes and their 2010 EP via bandcamp.

Ps i really really want to see you guys live, so make sure to tour the Eu anytime soon… uh …please!

Fitz & the Tantrums

Introducing…. Fitz & the Tantrums, although the album “Pick up the pieces” came out last summer and the Ep is even from way back in 2009. Its worth re-introducing this somewhat Motown instumented band, that reminds me, songstructure & hook wise, more of some 80ies bands that i simply cant name no more, but i know that Fitz’ swinging curl looks a lot like 80ies band ABC’s frontman Martin Fry, and the whole lot of them sure have that Blues Brothers look. In a post Mark Ronson world these songs fit right in with the modern day whiteboy soul thats rejecting todays so called soul offerings and looking for something with a more original feel – and this is where Fitz & the Tantrums come in, they sound authentic and thats why we dig them. Here are the tunes we recommend.
