SONG OF THE DAY The Putbacks – Oranges

Image result for the putbacks the putbacksBest-known for their heavy-funk orientated, ‘dirty’ rhythmic compositions, Melbourne’s funkiest 5-piece, The Putbacks served up another fine dish of tasty, soul-psych instrumentals on their latest eponymous album.  Released earlier this month and serving 100% guaranteed originality, the band’s latest offering is a fine collection of “crunchy post-soul post-jazz and mystery-cinema instrumentals.”

Inspired by the sounds of the 60’s and 70’s, soulful influences hailing from the likes of The MGs, The Metres and The Wrecking Crew has helped to shape their creative process; with nods to composers such as David Axelrod (I can def get into this influence) and Lalo Schifrin.  Contemporary instrumental groups such as BADBADNOTGOOD and Khruangbin, have also assisted in sculpting their  sound, a sound for which they create with what they have described as “near psychic intuition!”

It’s one of those records that you really need to hear in its entirety, its atmospheric journey takes you through an array of fascinating soundscapes, futuristic and beat-orientated..and whilst I may skip over the more jazzy parts, there’s still plenty to explore!

Second single Oranges gets straight down to it with its gripping, fast-paced beat and heavy groove! There’s no messing about with this tune and, with its crisp beats and dark bass supplying the perfect backdrop, the funk just flows… Check it out above and find the rest of the album here.
