RIYL: Gospel, Delta Blues, Soul

Label: Fat Elvis Records

Some of our best works of art in this country were spawned from the voices strained under great tyranny.  The blues was built on it, gospel fought with it, soul music danced with it and hip hop flourished in its streets.  The Oakland-bred Fantastic Negrito encapsulates a little of all of those voices in his music, wrestling with his pain and suffering through a set of pipes that could blow the roof off any church or night club.  His newest 7″ continues down that path, exploring every issue from poverty to exclusion to our nation’s history with racial tensions.  If there was ever a man that could authentically deliver the blues in 2016, it’s Fantastic Negrito.

Listen to the incendiary B-side The Nigga Song below, and check out A-side Working Poor after the ‘buy’ link.  His previous 7″ with Fat Elvis Records sold out quickly, and those variants sell for quite a bit on the secondary market, so grab one while you can.  As of now, there are about 20 copies left.
