2 new LOCAL slices of soul.

Local soul sister Chelsea Wilson has finally been born, on vinyl that is. She has worked a long time, cutting her teeth in jazz town but getting her groove on these days. She has enlisted some great players, led by the Cookin On Three Burners boys the sound is tight and on point. The A side is a snappy funk number opening up with a rolling drum break. The B side is sweet soul where she really does take it “one Day At A Time”. Also the first cut for local axeman Mitch Power.

The PUTBACKS are a super tight super super group of players that lay it DOOOOOOWWWWWWWNNNNNNN. The A Side features the soul stylings on NAI PALM a woman who has been laying it down and making people take notice of Melbourne town. She sings with Hiatus Kaiyote but has joined the Hope Street Records house band to deliver the goods. She told me her parents used to play her the Aretha version when she was little so life is coming full funky circle.  The b side is a hard instrumental groove these guys made their name doing. Led by the guitar the rhythm section pounds behind it with stabs from the keys, another Hiatus player, Simon Mavin. Comes with a download code.

Both at $10 per slice.

CACTUS CHANNEL “Emanuel Ciccolini” video

THEY ARE CALLING THIS A NEW AUSSIE BREAKERS ANTHEM!

Local soul kids The Cactus Channel have dropped the video for the first single off the highly anticipated debut album “HAPTICS”. This track is a glimpse at just how hot this LP is going to be. We are talking some super dope instrumental funk. Take a look at the video to see how tight these guys are. Its not just because they have played together for years and years but they only rehearse in a tiny shed. 9 piece funky squeeze – a lesson to be learned for us all.
