Post subject: Rhoda Dakar new record Reply with quote

Rhoda Dakar has just announced news of a brand new recording series, via PledgeMusic.

Following the critical acclaim of last year’s ’Rhoda Dakar sings The Bodysnatchers’ album (**** Mojo **** Rolling Stone **** Daily Mirror) Rhoda Dakar, former lead singer of 2 Tone’s The Bodysnatchers and The Special AKA, is set to release a brand new series of recordings, starting with the September 2016 release of The LoTek Four, Vol I.

Each volume of the LoTek Four series takes four beautifully crafted songs and strips them back to their essence. From there, recorded in the very best of surroundings, different versions can be engineered, versioneered, if you will. It may be that a Rocksteady version is favoured, or perhaps an almost Acoustic rendering.

The songs draw on Rhoda’s rich and personal musical influences, with Volume I embracing a fantastic array of story tellers and versioneers that include David Bowie, The Slits, Dolly Parton, Aretha, Gram and Emmylou, and her father, famed Jazz musician and entrepreneur Rudy Evans aka André Dakar.

Alongside Rhoda Dakar on lead vocals, The LoTek Four Vol I features Louis Vause and Paul Tadman (from Crunch aka the Nutty Boys/ The Lee Thompson Ska Orchestra Official), Lenny Bignell ( Pama International), Mark Claydon (The Get Up) and saxophonist Terry Edwards (PJ Harvey, The Blockheads, Tom Waitts, Madness, Spiritualized, Siouxsie, Nick Cave and her old 2Tone label mates The Higsons).

I think this was a well executed pledge campaign. Rhoda gave regular, funny updates. It was a short period of time between announcement and delivery. The free download was a nice bonus. The finished product is a quality item. The music has a great jazzy feel to it. Roll on volume 2.
