In-depths reviews and archive encounters with the reggae legend

Guess something’s going right in rock’s resurrection when we can cite reference points like The Gun Club and Crime & The City Solution without being dragged out to the paddock and shot. As The Duke Spirit are a London five-piece with a female frontperson in Liela Moss, these comparisons highlight their willingness to delve beneath the predictable: co-produced by Simon Raymonde, who we’re legally obliged to describe as “former Cocteau Twin”, this six-track debut mini album isn’t afraid to let a mood build, a groove grind up and down, a darkness descend. Echoing, scrawling white blues, with plenty of messed-up love, crystal-clear hate, whisky rants and horny demons.
