Description

The New Mastersounds rank among the preeminent modern soul and funk bands of their time. Having started out in Leeds, UK, the quartet tour the globe regularly, bringing their hardcharging, delectably greasy jams to all corners of the globe, to feed a hungry fanbase that stretches from New York City to Tokyo, San Francisco to Amsterdam and all points in between. In 2015, they return with Made For Pleasure – their most sprawling and ambitious record to date. The band’s core four-guitarist Eddie Roberts, drummer Simon Allen, bassist Pete Shand and organist Joe Tatton-are joined on the 11-track effort by guests including super fabulous soul chanteuse Charly Lowry, revered percussionist/vibraphonis Mike Dillon and the North Cali-based west Coast Horns, featuring tenor saxophonist Joe Cohen and trumpeter Mike Olmos.

Recorded in New Orleans, The New Mastersounds high-step through the humidity and heat leaving no soul or funk touchstone unturned. Both the title track and “High & Wide” are drenched in The-Meters-meet-Lee-Dorsey Big Easy funk, while tracks like “Enough Is Enough,” “Joy” and “Just Gotta Runvare firmly rooted in classic soul sister rhythm & blues tradition; think Tina Turner, Ann Peebles, Betty LaVette. Super-charged by Eddie Roberts’ stinging guitar leads, “Cigar Time” and “Sitting On My Knees” take a decidedly souljazz turn, diving headlong into Grant Green grit and groove. Capping off Made For Pleasure and further validating its title is a dubbed out reinvention of lggy Azalea’s smash hit “Fancy” that cleverly turns the pop artist’s ode to materialism into a 21st century stoner anthem with the repurposed refrain, “I’m so irie.”

The New Mastersounds know what feels good and deliver it in spades on their latest longplayer, and rightfully so, as it was afterall… Made For Pleasure.
