@@@ Amy Shark: Adore (Wonderlick/Sony, 2017) Blurbed as the perfect indie rock slow dance single I ask myself how could I not peep this? Regular readers know I’m no defender of indie rock, but this shit is not indie rock. 425 more words
A fresh take on Natty’s classic ‘Change’ track, with a more laid back riddim and a strictly UK rap line up of guest vocalists. There’s still both Akala and Mic Righteous but Busy Signal and Alborosie are swapped out for Raspect Fyabinghi, who was a member of the band Royal Sounds, but not sure if he’s still in their current line up.
