Classic-styled garage soul from East Vancouver's Ballantynes – their second strong single for La-Ti-Da Records! "Misery" is anything but a miserable listening experience – and like the other few songs we've heard from the group to date, it's straight-up irresistible! Gritty male lead vocals and sweet girl group-style backup, raw drums, vamping guitar, handclaps and Hammond. "Stay" is great, too – a male & female call and response cut.

Rojac, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
We've definitely got the jones for this cool little cut – a righteous funky number about the evil power of drugs – but set to one of the trippiest grooves we've ever heard! The track feels like a raw indie take on territory explored by The Temptations and Norman Whitfield – but ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
Funk Night, 2013. New Copy
Whether the label bills them as the Soul Surfers, or as the Slow Surfers, as they're going by on this 45, you know you're getting some masterful raw funk!
