New DIPLOMATS OF SOLID SOUND radio single and 45Published on Martedì, 14 Settembre 2010
"What Goes Around Comes Around", the new album by Iowa city Ambassadors of groove THE DIPLOMATS OF SOLID SOUND, is scheduled for release on Record Kicks and in the US via our mates at Pravda Records in October. This is the fifth full-length by The Diplomats and is once again entirely produced and edited by Adam Gibbons aka Lack Of Afro (Freestyle Records - UK). The first radio single from the album, "Give Me One More Chance", (which you can listen to on the Soundcloud player below), will start hitting the airwaves from next week. For all you vinyl addicts out there, in anticipation of the much awaited new album there's also a limited edition 45 OUT NOW on RK, featuring 2 other killer tracks from the full-length; "Back Off" / "B-O-O-G-A-L-O-O", (which you can listen to and buy on the player to the right).
The Diplomats Of Solid Sound can already count on a number of illustrious fans, and have secured radioplay from DJs such as Mark Lamarr (BBC 2), Craig Charles (BBC 6) and Micheal Ruetten (Compost Rec) amongst others. The 11 tracks of 60s-inspired funk and soul that appear on "What Goes Around Comes Around" are likely to have more than a couple of aficionados getting excited, as they document a distinct evolution of the band, that though firmly rooted in the best tradition of American soul, RnB and funk, reveals in this new full-length a decidedly more refined style, both in the composition and execution of songs. There is no doubt that this album is destined to become a future classic, just hear it to believe it!
