The Sorcerers – The Sorcerers
The Sorcerers have released their excellent self-titled debut album on ATA Records. Taking influences from Ethiopiques ethiojazz as well as the soundtracks to the European horror films of the 60s and 70s, The Sorcerers seamlessly blend these disparate elements into one cohesive package.
This is raw, heavy instrumental funk music, on a par with the likes of The Heliocentrics, The Natural Yoghurt Band and so on. Their sound is more introspective than full on party, but this doesn’t mean they don’t know how to let loose.
“The Sorcerers” is definitely one of the best modern funk albums we have heard this year and urge you all to check it out. It is available now on limited LP, CD and digital along with a limited edition silk screen poster.
