Review: Milan mystic funkateering five-piece Calibro 35 tease with two songs from their forthcoming album Decade. As always, expect full instrumental mischief as the long-haired gang duff us up with fast-paced, super-tight grooves laced with heady levels of cosmicity. "SuperStudio" is the entrance theme of your dreams. A big ballsy riff, full orchestration and a momentum that pushes you deep inside your favourite 70s movie. "Gomma" is straight up funk prog fusion with its warbling synths and big dark energetic waves. Bring on the album!
Review: Having not released anything for going on eight years, it's something of a surprise to see Pama International return to action. The all-star ska and reggae combo, whose line-up includes members of the Specials, Galliano and PWEI, amongst others, have decided to release a clutch of clear vinyl 7" singles all at the same time. "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye" is typical of their output; an effortlessly sweet chunk of sun-kissed ska-soul fusion that sounds like it could have been recorded in Kingston, Jamaica at the turn of the sixties. Flipside "Gasoline", meanwhile, is a tasty instrumental reggae jam laden with bold Hammond organ motifs, jazzy guitar solos and heavyweight bass.
