Recorded live at Sons d’Hiver February 5th, 2011.
Our version of what R and B might sound like today if live bands hadn’t been derailed by sampling technology in the Black community somewhere around 1977.
We’ve got all the freeform raging horns and guitars of our previous albums only compositionally compressed into these groovevicious post-everythang song forms.
