Ikebe Shakedown - The Way HomeColemine
The Brooklyn based band return with another collection of infectious gritty funk instrumentals. "The Way Home" pulls from an array of influences of Afro, psychedelia and a heavy dose of soul. There's plenty to savor here starting with the opening track "Supermoon". A fiery soul tune ripe with blistering horns, percussion and wicked electric guitar rhythms. "she's Knocking" is slow grinding soul that follows the same formula. With their trademark tight instrumentation and no sign of filler, "The Way Home" is a sure bet for soul aficionados.
