✨✧ M-TetTotal Non-Stop Action ... LP
Funk Night, 2019. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
The funky M-Tet combo add in just a slight bit of extra grease to the sound that made their debut so tight – occasional horn flairs and a bit of congas, plus maybe a bit more fuzz on the guitar!

Classic-styled funk from Alex Puddu – not only the greatest record we've heard from him so far, but a set that's definitely worthy of its "golden age" claim in the title!
