U.S. RELEASE OF NEW ALBUM WITH BONUS CUTS & REMIXES
AND CELEBRATORY SHOWS IN MARCH
"Like Fred Wesley & The New JB's, Bobby Byrd, Marva Whitney or Maceo & The Macks in their day, the Mastersounds know groove and furrow it out like hogs on truffles." -JamBase
The New Mastersounds are pleased to announce the US release of Plug & Play with special additions including remixes by JD73 (former bassist from Morcheeba), DRAWBAR, and 2 bonus live tracks. Preceded by already rave reviews and amazing live shows, the album, released by One Note Records/Fontana, is due out on March 3, 2009 with special bonus tracks included. What you get: trademark infectious grooves, warm vintage production by guitarist Eddie Roberts, and successful forays into sub-genres like psychedelic afro-funk and soul jazz. With the phenomenal vocal additions of Dionne Charles, Plug & Play is epically representative of the unmistakable soulfulness of their music.
