Willie West – I’m Still A Man

This relentless underdog of the New Orleans soul history known for his work with The Meters and Allen Toussaint has been laying low in the northern parts of the US for a while now. Lately he has emerged with new raw sound, which fuses very distinctly personal lyricism with heavy minor key grooves provided by the guys at Timmion Records.

TR705 – Willie West – I’m Still A Man – new single, out on October 30 2015 through Timmion Records.

Calibro 35 – S.P.A.C.E.

Calibro 35’s fifth studio album will take you into space. The 14 track album is called S.P.A.C.E. and was recorded at Toe Rag Studios in London, the worldwide famous studio where The White Stripes recorded Elephant, only with an 8-track tape recorder. It is a departure from the band’s previous noir stylings and sees them experiment with an atmospheric sci-fi soundtrack feel.

Calibro 35 – S.P.A.C.E. is now available through Record Kicks on Digital, Vinyl and CD.
