EXCLUSIVE NEW DOWNLOAD: The Herbaliser - Words
The creeping feeling that winter will soon have us in its icy mitts grows as many of us pull out our heavy layers. So there's no better time to let your brain, at least, take a quick holiday to warmer climes care of The Herbaliser. Being from London, the five-piece funk/soul/rap troupe know the need to escape dreary weather, and their lively tunes are just the ticket. Take "Words," an exclusive track from the sessions that birthed their recent album, Same As It Never Was. Its funky stomp, glinting with a barrage of cheerful horns and coated in sexy coos, is not yanked from a dusty vinyl, but rather the work of The Herbaliser's spot-on brass section and charming vocalist, Jessica Darling. And while you're stretched out on the mental porch in your mind, MC More or Les peppers his rhymes across the loping groove, recalling the days when most rappers celebrated their vocabulary. Now nicely ask your roommate to be a good cabana boy and get you another beer.
