Nostalgia 77- "Simmerdown"


The Sleepwalking Society--released this month on Tru Thoughts--comes almost four years after Everything Under the Sun: Nostalgia 77's previous album. This octet’s influences include free and spiritual jazz; plus, funk, soul, and Afrobeat. On “Simmerdown,” guest vocalist Josa Peit takes center stage in Nostalgia 77’s debut video. Her sultry voice, backed by a groovy percussion section, sounds like a blissful drift down a spring stream. -
