It’s Friday and the weekend is here! This one is going to be extra special as I’m off to see the legendary ‘Madchester’ crew the Happy Mondays!! Shaun, Bez and gang are taking to the stage at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City. I’ll be posting a full review on Monday so be sure to check back!

In the meantime here’s a top band to get you grooving out of the shackles of the office:

Fat Freddy’s Drop

Hailing from Wellington, New Zealand. Fat Freddy’s Drop have been playing their brand of soulful dub reggae for over 10 years, and in their home country have already gone multi platium with their debut album Based On A True Story. Their new album Dr. Boon Digger & The BW carries on that sound. Long winding jam sessions with a sparse easy-going feel that are so soulful you’ll be grooving away in no time. They have a wonderful way of building up the track from just a bassline to a funk jam with blasting horns, squeeling guitar and the ever present Bill Wethers-esque vocals of lead singer Dallas Tamaira. Stand out track from the new album has to be The Camel featuring the great Alice Russel (Quantic) on vocals:

Have a wicked weekend and don’t forget to check out Big Al’s 2 Cents. See you all on Monday!
