It aint about kitchenware, i promise!
Been hearing these soulful blissed out beats from a NYC group called Homebase recently; annoyingly, when you google them, the search yields little aside from a well known store trying to flog you kitchen, garden and houseware!
Luckily the lovely band have put their ep up for a free download, recorded live at NYC's Clubhouse.
I can't tell you a lot about the band themselves, but i have a little knowledge of the guests on a couple of their tracks.
Track 2 features the slick, slow drawled lyrics of NYC rapper Homeboy Sandman. Last year i managed to dig a copy of his sundrenched, lazy, feelgood track, Parallel Perpendicular. Big tune!
Track 5 - and the standout for me - Sleep, features the lush soulful vocals of Coco o from shockingly little known Danish band Quadron; check their self titled album from last year. More beautiful feelgood, hair stand up on the back of your neck bizniz! Top drawer. Check the free download here - http://homebasenyc.bandcamp.com
