LERON THOMAS – the man who oversaw last year’s LP Free for a certain James Newell Osterberg (OK, OK … Iggy Pop to me and thee) has come out from behind the faders to carve some pretty immaculate leftfield funk grooves.
He’s dropped a new and seductive quirky thang for Lewis Recordings, “Endicott”, on which the necessary crazy and inventive is proper slid up to 11. We’ve embedded it below for you; Bootsy, you watch them heels man, this man knows loose limbed and perfect weeerd when he makes it.
Those drums, rattling, insisting what you do next is obey; the almost operatic falsetto; that snapping, popping, tight bass, those insouciant dropouts. The symphonic space funk of the climax. Fun and funk of the P-est kind, that’s where we at.
It comes sliding in for your synapses on the back of “Beans And Rice”, the wake-up call we took a fancy to back in mid-July. Oh, see what we had to say and cop a listen to that as well.
