Release Date: Out Now
Fantastic Negrito is still relatively new to me but even by this second single release I can tell that this is a relationship built to last. Much like when I first discovered Ben Harper, here we find a man who can switch from politically charged rock to organ slathered funk with a healthy dose of soul. New single ‘The Duffler’ is definitely the latter but there is still an element of injustice and anger in the lyrics despite the wailing blues guitar solo, Led Zep riffs and those aforementioned and utterly gorgeous organs. Negrito’s voice is a show stopper with James Brown’s breathless desperation mixed with in with smooth soul tones where they’re needed to get the message across.
