monks road social

I’m suspecting that this might be the next instalment of Wonderfulsound’s so far excellent seven inch subscription series, the a side of a nifty little Monks Road Social two stepper which on this occasion features guest invitees Pat Dam Smyth and Shona Carmen each applying their tones on a side apiece. For now we’re concentrating our affections on the Shona Carmen option ‘head down to love’ which in passing the label describe as a ‘bossa soul groove somewhere between Sly Stone and Air’. Frankly, they may have a point because this distractive dainty is silkily teased with a svelte n’ sultry lights lowered chic that purrs to a slinky soul setting whose measured and unfussed unpeeling has a curious off centred understated charm that’s tingled with a sensitive close intimacy.
