Championed in the local and national press, and mentioned countless times by Craig Charles, the difficulty in turning the buzz into a meaningful, important recording can be a challenge. 

Full of lovely, upbeat, funk and soul grooves Weekend Sun’s Caught In A Machine more than lives up to the hype; in fact there’s enough quality here to suggest that there hasn’t been enough buzz around this release in the first place. Centred around a mid-90’s acid jazz/Brand New Heavies sound, Caught In A Machine has both an upbeat sound and a focused narrative; and whilst the songs may sound happy and sunny, cut them open and you’ll find they run a lot deeper than they appear.  Warm in the inside, crunchy on the outside; believe the hype.
