JOHN LEGEND (FT THE ROOTS), JESS ROSE + RIVA STARR PLUS STONEFIELD

I was introduced to the new JOHN LEGEND track by that epicentre of the New Music media… Radio Ulster. Cough. On reflection perhaps not as big as surprise as you might initially reckon as that part of the world is well known for its love of soul, funk and such like. Ft THE ROOTS check out his new track ‘I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free’.

It’s always dangerous for your fondness of a producer when they go sampling a much loved tracks of yours. Well High Five JESSE ROSE and RIVA STARR you have pulled it off, largely because you have done sod all to the track but hey I’ll focus on your ability to recognise if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. ‘Start The Weekend’ truly lives up to its name, a Disco House anthem. Yeah Baby. Sorry.

STONEFIELD have left me wondering is this how Australia do ‘girl bands’? If so I’m moving. Great, great band with a really powerful lead vocal, awesome cowbell and very cute ‘pretty much unemployed one’ who I’m guessing in normal circumstances might be the bassist. Really exciting new band check out ‘Through The Clover’.
