The Herbaliser

Same As It Never Was (K7 2008)

The Herbaliser are all about moving forward, onwards and upwards. Bonding over a shared love of jazz, funk, rare groove and hip hop in the early 1990s, West London duo Jake Wherry and Ollie Teeba have evolved with each chapter in their 15-year story. First it was instrumental beats, breaks and samples. Then they added guest rappers and vocalists. Later, as international festival favourits, their line-up swelled into a mini-orchestra with lush arranges to match. On their latest album, Same As It Was, The Helbaliser hit a dazzling new peak. With a new label, a new main vocalist, and a new focus on soulful songwriting, this is their richest and most diverse record so far. A timless modern soul record, it should appeal not just to specialist fans but also to a new generation seduced by the knowing pop-soul nostalgia of Amy Winehouse or Mark Ronson. Glossy and gritty, organic and eclectic, Same As I Never Was builds on the band`s hip hop roots with jazz, pop and instrumental soundtrack influences...

Excellent post, all those tracks are wonderful and I really recommend each single. All is about sounds and vocalization, specially if we're talking about this kind of genre. 23jj

Thanks for sharing it. It has been a while since I saw an album with a great recompilation.
