Distant Cousins ‎– You Used To (12″)

A slow and soulful release from Manchester band, Distant Cousins. Similar to M People with even more soul and with a touch of jazz, helped by the rich voice of Doreen Edwards,

The B-side, “Concrete Boxes” is more of a guitar based, with plenty of indie jangle from band member Neil Fitzpatrick, who was in Post Punk band, The Smirks.

Additional track is back to Jazz, just voice of Miss Edwards, stunning singing and doing a great tribute to Ellie Fitzgerald’s “My Man”….. hauntingly cool!

Not on i-tunes….like a lot of stuff on this blog.
