Album: Soothsayers, Human Nature, Red Earth Records

Although this London band have shifted focus towards a more roots reggae vibe, the emphasis is still on capturing the spirit of the 1970s Jamaican and Nigerian music that inspires them.

The grooves are solid, the playing immaculate and the three-part vocal harmonies the icing on the cake. Only occasionally, though, do they steer a more interesting course between funk, reggae and Afrobeat and thereby escape being merely nostalgic or generic.
