Brand New ~ Sealed 2LP Set On 180 Gram Vinyl With Insert. Records Have Picture Labels.
New Zealand’s heavyweight soul providers, Fat Freddy’s Drop took flight once again in 2013, with their third full-length release, ‘Blackbird’. Featuring nine tracks, ‘Blackbird’ was written and recorded at Bays, the band’s own studio (which was one of the last vinyl pressing plants in New Zealand), and then an apostolic church.
Fitchie says, “What you hear on the album is the sound of Bays; the room itself, the vibe of the place and the performance we can get out of the band in there.” “Blackbird is truer to FFD’s musical philosophy than anything else we’ve done”, says Chopper Reeds. “The song structures are open and unruly — just like our live shows — whilst we’ve pushed ourselves to deliver rich and deeply layered arrangements that showcase Joe Dukie’s exceptional voice. We feel totally at home melding together this unholy mix of disco, rootsy dub, blues, soul and electronic funk — it’s what we do.”
