THIRD COAST KINGS REVIEW:
Record Kicks brings you the latest (and much awaited) release from the Third Coast Kings …with their bonafide funk sound and prodcution, this does not sound like it was made in 2011/12 ….more like 40 years ago. So what has this album got to offer? ..you got the Sweet soul of “Give me your love”, the deep smokey Funk of “Roughneck” or J.B. style Sax on “Cop it Proper” but the 2 standout tracks for me are “Emcee Marie” and “Summalove”.
“Emcee Marie” is gonna be a dancefloor killer. I’ll be road testing this at the Big Chill Bristol on the 30th and I got a feeling about this one. At 92 BPM, with a tough breakbeat, this smacks of the warm up tune that fills the floor.
As for “Summalove”, well the name says it all… you can almost feel the sun on your cheeks when listening to this one. just lovely.
I’d like to add by saying these guys have a swing to their groove that is missing from alot of modern funk bands. This does not sound like it was played to a tick track, nor does it sound like it was arranged in cubase. This is the real deal.
