A – The PutBacks feat. Chantal Mitvalsky – Friend or Foe
With a powerful voice, the lovely Miss Mitvalsky offers a scorching soul polemic, a tale of miscommunication and love gone wrong in the Bobzilla-penned tune “Friend or Foe”. Chantal has paid her dues on the Australian scene, singing in a variety of groups from Jackson Jackson to Wonderground. Backed by a hot rhythm section and tuff horns, she makes this song her own. This is Brunswick soul at its finest.
B – The PutBacks – Diamond Cutter
The PutBacks are known for their deep funky groove and their dirty, raw and melodic sound. After years as a backing band for vocalists such as Kate Ceberano and Nat Dunn, the PutBacks began peddling their own brand of raw instrumental funk in 2007. “Diamond Cutter” written by Tom Martin features a 3 piece horn section alongside the powerhouse rhythm section that is The PutBacks.
“The PutBacks lay down a groove exactly how I want to hear it: With super-heavy authentic tones, attitude and feel…” – Lance Ferguson (The Bamboos/Lanu)
