Slinky Dub from Super Hi-Fi
Brooklyn Afrobeat dub outfit Super Hi-Fi have a great new single, the sardonically titled Single Payer, just out on high-grade vinyl on Electric Cowbell Records, “probably the only dub track you will hear that works in samples of Nancy Pelosi and Joe Lieberman alongside a fiery trombone solo,” as the band puts it. The A-side is a seven-minute roots reggae instrumental with Alex Asher and Ryan Snow doing ominous harmonies on their trombones over the slinky groove of bassist Ezra Gale (formerly of the excellent Bay Area group Afrodesia) and Madhu Siddappa on drums, with Will Graefe skanking on guitar, oldschool stylee. The B-side is a version by Victor Rice, who also knows a thing or two about dub. They’re both streaming at Soundcloud, along with a bunch of other equally mind-melting mixes. Enjoy!
