Time Grove More Than One Thing Wah Wah 45s are very proud to announce the release of the debut album from forward-thinking Tel Aviv based ensemble, Time Grove. Guided by acclaimed pianist Nitai Hershkovits alongside one third of Buttering Trio, and newly signed Stones Throw recording artist, Rejoicer, this group of musicians have produced a sound which is both delicate yet powerful; sonorous yet uplifting.

Honeyfeet Meet Me On The Corner Meet Me On The Corner is taken from the band’s second album, Orange Whip, which itself was BBC 6Music’s Album of The Day on its release. It follows previous singles Whatever You Do and Sinner, which garnered support from Craig Charles, Tom Ravenscroft and Huey Morgan. The song showcases Honeyfeet at their funkiest and chunkiest. A pounding beat beefed up by bass, guitar and brass propels forward while Rioghnach Connolly sings lyrics that could be straight out of the playground, but suggest something deeper, possibly mystical even, in its demands for a dalliance on the street.

Resonators Won't Suffer / Miles Says Following on from their critically acclaimed single ‘Something Special / Why I (Discomix)’ (championed by the likes of David Rodigan, Huey Morgan & Don Letts) seminal UK Dub outfit Resonators return with another crucial, dubwise offering on Wah Wah 45s. A thick haze engulfs the opening of opening track ‘Won’t Suffer’. Haunting dub sirens pierce the ether, before the atmosphere clears for the rippling vocals, spilling through the veins of the track and bringing it to life, along with some earth-shaking bass. On the flip, ‘Miles Says’ takes on a more sun-kissed approach, a blissful summertime jam, strictly for the lovers. Both tracks are also accompanied by two spaced out versions, perfect for astral travelling. Resonators are without a doubt one of the most powerful and highly regarded dub outfits in the UK, taking all the influences of original Jamaican sounds and riddims, and bringing it forward into the sounds of here and now.With a plethora of new songs under their belt and a further EP scheduled for release later in the year, as well as what’s becoming a very healthy catalogue of crowdpleasers from their last two albums, Resonators are touring the UK and Europe throughout spring and summer.

Soothsayers Sleepwalking (Black Man's Cry) / Natural Mystic Having recently filled London’s Jazz Cafe to much acclaim, and in anticipation of their new album, Tradition, out on Wah Wah 45s in June, Soothsayers unleash the second single to be taken from it. It’s a double header of sorts that shows the band’s knack of reinterpreting a cover version or two for the dance floor. ‘Sleepwalking’ is a take on Fela Kuti’s 1971 classic Black Man’s Cry. It’s a chant of frustration aimed at disenfranchisement from the process and features Afrobeat Ambassador Dele Sosimi on guest vocal duties. It questions if we are sleepwalking into the abyss, and is a revolutionary song about taking power back into our own hands! Although it’s challenging to do justice to a Bob Marley cover, on ‘Natural Mystic’ Soothsayers cradle the spirit of the originator and turn it upside down, transforming the familiar into a journey back to Africa via their trademark groove. Spiritual jazz flutes and percussion combine with the floating vocals of the mighty Cornel Campbell, while the song’s main melody is emphatically reproduced by Soothsayers horn section to stunning effect.
