Weller, Weller: Da Lata go underground on their new album
It’s been nine years since Brazilian-influenced British duo Da Lata last released a studio album, but judging by a teaser that saw the light of the day this week, the upcoming new bunch of a songs, to be launched in early 2013 will bring a new twist – the album is still unnamed. Da Lata is ”literally” Going Underground, with a version of The Jam’s iconic track, featuring Brixton singer Floetic Lara. A stripped down version, with just guitar and vocals, has already hit YouTube.
Released as a limited edition 7” vinyl (as well as digital download), the single is paired with a new track, a catchy psychedelic samba that gets a delicious eeriness thanks to the contribution of British trombonist Dennis Rollins. The brainchild of producer Chris Franck and DJ Patrick Forge, Da Lata have recruited a team of World Music stars to chip in for the new album, including Mayra Andrade and Diabel Cissokho.
Now that’s what we call fusion.
