The New Mastersounds - This is What We DoOne Note
NMS return with more funk-fuelled instrumentals on this their fourth album. Most people seem to remember these guys for their funk version of NuYorican Soul's 'Nervous Track' and here they have covered Jimi Hendrix's 'Ain't No Telling' and Donny Hathaway's 'Zambezi' to great effect. NMS is led by the exceptionally talented guitarist Eddie Roberts and all eleven tracks are as tight as you'd expect with raw and stripped down productions. Keep an eye out for their excellent funk remix of Soldiers of Twilight's house anthem 'Believe'
