New Release: Wah Wah 45s – ‘Allo Love Volume One’

 

Yes! This might be love. We are excited to share with you Wah Wah 45s first of what’s to be an extremely dope digital compilation series. Each compilation will be put together by a different member of the Wah Wah family, starting off with label head Dom Servini bringing us Allo Love Volume One.

The selections are brilliant. The mood of the compilation is mostly mellow with each highly melodic track easing us into the next. The music included represents Wah Wah 45s artists, extended family of the label, and a possible future signee! Hear music from Colman Brothers, Stac, Hackney Colliery Band, Ambassadeurs, Yult, Tanya Auclair, and Szjerdene, amongst others.

New Release: Hackney Colliery Band – S/T

 

Inspired by New Orleans marching bands, Balkan Brass, and hip-hop, the Hackney Colliery Band was formed in 2008 by a group of London horn players looking to serve up their own British variety of brass tunes. Already having sold out shows at Scala and Jazz Café, which featured a surprise guest appearance from Amy Winehouse, the band has already stirred quite a buzz. A few weeks ago, HCB released their first album and we are loving the energy – the personality in their music is palpable.

The music is eclectic and highly collaborative; Various band members bring in whatever tickles their fancy to rehearsals, including 90s hip hop, pop classics, cartoon samples, rock ballads, and Balkan tunes alike. The result is a melting pot of delicious sound with funk and flavor for days. And we got a particular kick out of the Blackstreet and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ covers.
