Electric Wire Hustle – (self titled)
I sort of happened upon this album looking for another album – one of those gems you sort of run into on accident. And it is a real find of an album. This is a R&B outfit out of New Zealand (of all places), in the vein of some of the guests on the album, such as Georgia Anne Muldrow and Stacey Epps. A lot of the material has been out a good minute, if you’re up on the NZ music scene. A very unified, and full sound….and very soulful – they play like they really mean it…and with some interesting lyrics (anti nukes..etc). Just an excellent album, from an unexpected locale. One of the best R&B/Soul albums of 2010 – Highly recommended.
