Recently put on the circuit via Hamburg's Legere Recordings and well appealing to all fans of the more Funk-related side of things is "Mind The Curb" - the first longplay effort of the labels thrillingly powerful Instrumental Funk signing Kerbside Collection. With their extraordinary and slightly Psychedelia-infused musical vision they take you directly into the soundtrack wizzardry of classic 70s spy flics where cocktail parties and straight Martinis were all at rage and style was still a state of mind instead of trying to catch up with what's regarded as latest blog hype. Fusing psychedelic Easy Listening-flavored guitars with some Reggae'isms adds a bit of extra finish and so does the laid back, summerly vibe of "Red Stripe", not mentioning the additional remixes crafted by Paprika and Renegades Of Jazz. If you want a proper and totally in style soundtrack for your next serious late night drink right beside your Miami- or Nizza-based pool this is the album you should ask your local record dealer for. Soon'ish.
