The L.B.'S - Of August Countenance

 The L.B.'S - Gazing Lovingly Feat. Rezin Tooth

"Sounds like a joint by Ethio-jazz luminary Mulatu Astatke produced by pioneering '60s producer Joe Meek. The slinky rhythm, woozy horns, Jacques Willis's spine-tingling vibraphone motif, and Tomer Zuk's serpentine organ solo cohere into a graceful journey to enchantment. Flipside "Gazing Lovingly" is suffused in a sublime nocturnal glow reminiscent of Faze-O's "Riding High" while strutting in slow-motion to a funky drummer (Grant Schroff) who has ice in his veins."
-Dave Segal via The Stranger

"Psychedelic lo-fi vein distinctive Ethio-jazz-funk!..blissed-out affair featuring synth washes and has its bottom end lovingly teased (ooh, matron!)"
-Monkeyboxing.com

"Both sides sound absolutely amazing, a must have for the crates, it's records like these that will surely be future digs of tomorrow"
-DJ Skeme Richards
