Skinshape - Arrogance Is The Death Of Men (Vinyl LP)

Label: Lewis Recordings 

Cat No: LEWIS1091LP

You don't just hear the 1970s funk influences in Skinshape's music, you can feel them too - especially if you're doing the right thing soundsystem-wise. Tracks like 'The Eastern Connection' could almost be swapped-in for a Dilated Peoples instrumental, all lackadaisical roll and hot, balmy air. In actual fact, it's the work of Dorset, UK maestro, Will Dorey.

An accomplished musician with a significant back catalogue (make a note), the whole album struts, strides and strolls its way through intoxicating grooves. Half the time it's hard to know whether you should be kicking back on a tropical veranda slowly sipping on a fresh Old Fashioned. But then it's more timeless than vintage. Using elements of psyche, soul and sticky blues, while'Losing My Mind' is perhaps the apex - a heartfelt vocal slow jam that's made for tears before bed - there's more emotion in the crooning guitars alone here than many vocalists could hope to muster with words.
