New Music or Is It?

I received this single through the post the other week. On first listen, if you didn't know better you would think that this was an oldie from the days of the Casino. It is however from the tail end of last year and what's more comes out of Finland! I would have stuck money on this being from the West Coast of the USA circa 1968/70.

Myron & E, who supply the vocals are indeed from the States and are part of the hiphop/soul scene and have worked with the likes of Blackalicious, Missy Elliot, the Roots and others not the kind of music you would readily think of when you here the sweet, laid back vocals on this track.

The Soul Investigators whio provide the backing track all glorious strings, joyous horns and driving percussion are from Finland and have produced a fine album with Nicole Willis which is worth checking out.

This is just the thing for a suny afternoon at the end of June. Enjoy.

Yes, heard this one earlier too, courtesy of Mondo, and like you couldn't quite believe it was a new recording - love the parody label too: damn I miss records that looked like that...
