Reliably informed

Delivering the follow-up to November’s A.I. Masters, Pt 2 sees Downtown Lester Brown in an uncharacteristically chipper mood for this release. The Newcastle-based self-proclaimed funk rock maestros serve up good quality electro guitar-led tunes, complemented by fat as funk, funky bass lines, with flecks of Latin essence. The band profess their lyrics to not have much substance, with song titles such as Jigsaw Maverick, Funky Monkey and Batteries Not Included, fun would be the order of the day here.

Having been described by some guy down the pub as ‘like if Jamiroquai binged the entire anthology of Black Mirror and sat down to record a three track EP’, this is a more than adequate description for their sound and a story too good not to include.
