Let’s call this a placeholder post, one to return to in a few months. I’m seeing faint whispers of this album here and there, but only 2 songs from the band have surfaces so far. It seems to be something along the lines of The Whitefield Brothers / JD And The Evil’s Dynamite Band / Daktaris. It looks promising. But information is scarce, so scarce in fact that the two songs I’m posting were actually released under different band names (judging by the cover Skeletons is the right moniker). The only thing I know is that Ben Lamdin from Nostalgia 77 is behind this in some way.
Whatever they’re called, what they’re offering here is relevant to my interests. Heavy instrumental funk (possibly leaning towards the african side of things), a little on the weird side, with some notable jazz overtones. I have a feeling this one might be a little more accessible than The Whitfield Bros latest effort (read here). I also suspect Stones Throw will re-release this a year from now. We’ll see. For the moment let’s say there is a good chance I will be enjoying this album (tentatively) around March or so.
