Funk Night, 2018. New Copy ... $12.99
A wicked little slow funk number – one that definitely takes its time as the drums break and basslines set up the groove – followed by wah-wah guitar that's moving at an equally relaxed pace – yet which, like the rest, all come together with the kind of sharp, soulful quality that' ...
