These Eyes / Invisible City Editions

Brandon Hocura, Gary Abugan, Dr Rob, Test Pressing, Review, Afro, Caribbean, These Eyes, Invisible City Editions

A new 7 from Invisible City Editions. Two sides of horny Caribbean Afro. “Soca Hustle”, which you may have heard before, is the smoother of them (with a great bass line). “Let Me Love” however challenges Wilson Le Grendre in the barmy stakes, with a pleading Do-Wop vocal and a harmonica characterized by enthusiasm over chops. Crazy echo on everything. When the clipped highlife guitar gets dropped and that harmonica instead goes up against a fruity organ I can hear flashes of the Happy Mondays swirling, shambolic skunk Funk.

The Invisible City Editions chaps are on a short European tour at the moment. You can find out more details here.
