Spotlight: Super Hi-Fi - "Single Payer"

If you read the Afropop Blog on the regular then you know we got some mad love for Electric Cowbell Records. Somehow these guys just keep on digging out some great music from bands that really present creatively tight, sonically-rich, organic sounds that blend various styles into some goodness for your ears. On top of that they still got love for vinyl and good looking album covers. Always a plus.

This time we just got a track from the Brooklyn-based Super Hi-Fi who just dropped a new seven-inch via Electric Cowbell. Side A features a dubby Afrobeat offering called "Single Payer." The first half slowly unwinds like a Skatalites track co-opted by King Tubby before the second half picks up the pace as the brass comes in for a gorgeous conclusion.

Hear for yourself:

You can pre-order the seven-inch now via their website. It officially drops on 2.21.

Finally, if you are in New York be sure to check them out at Zebulon in Williamsburg on February 16th with Spanglish Fly. Show is free and starts at 9pm.
